New School Tattoos Are Brilliant Art

New school tattoos, sometimes called new ‘skool’ tattoos, are known for their vivid colors, thick line work, and cartoonish proportions. Despite their name, they are heavily influenced by old school American tattooing styles. The new school tattoo style represents a rebirth of traditional tattoos with a wider variety of colors and gradients to deal with. Along with that, new school tattoos cover all types of subject matters, from the old school eagles and anchors to more recent caricature styles. All tattoos are works of art, but thanks to their innovative tattooing techniques, new school tattoos stand out as brilliant.
