Every classic tattoo style has a classic, timeless motif. These motifs never age, they never sour, they never seem out of place when done right.
These are the koi sleeves and dragon back pieces of Traditional Japanese Tattoos.
The dagger & heart and lighthouse tattoos of Neo-Traditional American Tattoos.
The bold black lines and shading of Polynesian, Maori and Samoan Tattoos.
Tattoo trends come and go, but the ones that can stand the test of time with timeless elegance, are the ones that people keep coming back for year after year. The saying “bold will hold” applies to all of these styles, and most often these types of tattoos, when cared for properly, will look as crisp, as detailed, and as solid as the day they were done. You just can’t go wrong.
