The old school tattoo, or traditional, has its origin in America from 1930 to 1960. Inspired by the cultures of the American Indians, the sailors of the Navy and the bikers, they are characterized by black outlines, few nuances and rather dark and simple shades.
At the time, tattoo artists were technically limited in the choice of colors and the technological progress of the machines allowed few fantasies. More practiced to represent symbols or to evoke a lifestyle, the old school tattoos did not have then a priority aesthetic aim.
In the western civilization, the sailors' tattoos are the first to have spread all over the world. They allowed the people of the sea to remember where they came from but also to tell all the adventures they had lived.
