For many tattoo artists and tattoo collectors, the love for Traditional is a real inexhaustible passion. The iconic subjects, the unmistakable palette, the clarity of the messages that these tattoos bring with them, make them real masterpieces that never go out of fashion.
Pin up and panthers, horseshoes, skulls and roses, sacred hearts, the Pharaoh’s Horses, the Man’s ruin, the Rock of Ages, are just some examples of subjects that do not lose their charm with the passage of time… Quite the opposite!
Over the years someone has remained faithful to the Old-school, while others have reinterpreted the wide range of suggestions with their creativity (Deno, in this gallery, is a typical example). Which side are you on?
