Exploring the Modern Renaissance of Old School & Neo-Traditional Tattooing
Jakob Schultz, Photography by Peter Booker Nielsen
• Features 300-plus images of “old school” tattoos, one of the most popular styles today
• A thoughtful reminder of tradition’s ongoing impact upon today’s fast-growing tattoo art world
• Insider thoughts from 15 of the tattoo artists currently impacting the world with this style
This book focuses on the traditional (old school) style of tattooing and its ongoing impact on today’s tattoo
art. More than 300 stunning color photos are combinedwith tattoo artists’ personal explanations of why they
love to work in the traditional style, and the artistic challenges that it poses today. For the 15 tattoo artists in
this book, the essence of real and true tattooing is the traditional one: bold lines, simplemotifs, black and red
colors—tattoos built to last on the skin. From the early beginnings in the late 19th century among sailors,
traditional tattoos have been developed further by today’s tattoo artists. Neo-traditional, Americana, new
school, old school—the names are many, but all have that single common heritage: they are based on the
simple lines created on the sailors’ skins many years ago.
