Still incorporating all of the things which define traditional tattoos such as solid outlines and iconic imagery, neo-traditional adds an extra layer of jazz and flavour.
As opposed to flat, 2D designs which classical traditional is known for, neo-traditional includes deep shading, heavy contrast and versatile colors to add layers of depth, dimension, and a touch of realism to the proceedings.
Whilst always maintaining its roots, neo-traditional allows for more creative freedom than its traditional counterpart, thanks to its broader color palette and more flexible line width. While neo-traditional often gets thrown in with the new school style, it’s important to know there are vast differences between the two.
