Traditional style tattoos, which can include American Traditional and Japanese Traditional, are created using bold lines, thick shading, and solid colors, most often red, yellow, green, and blue. Common traditional themes include iconic imagery such as: nautical objects, animals, ladies, roses, and skulls.

New school style tattoos often include vibrant colors and exaggerated shapes or features.
