American Traditional Tattoo Style

The American Traditional Tattoo style is easily identified by its bold black lines outlining pieces of art you are sure to recognize. For example, you’ll see sparrows in flight, ships at sea, dancing mermaids, and “MOM” heart tattoos. However, these are only a few that may come to mind when we think of the American Traditional tattooing style. This unique style of ink is native to the united states and is a truly important icon of American culture.

American Traditional tattoos have their roots in the history of many cultures and countries. In fact, sailors and soldiers traveling around the world and experiencing varied cultures has sparked an array of tattoo ideas. Service men continue to get tattoos as symbols of protection and reminders of their loved ones. In addition, these tattoos stand to mark their body for identification if their lives are lost in war.
