3 Awesome Tattoo Styles

3 Awesome Tattoo Styles – Before deciding on getting your first Las Vegas Tattoo, body piercing, different tattoo styles, tattoo ideas, and so forth, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. With all the different tattoo styles on the market, it can be hard to decide what to get.

Here is a quick overview of three popular tattoo styles:

Photo Realistic Tattoos

One should think carefully about getting a tattoo in this style, because the realistic looking picture on the skin will look strikingly like a picture in real life. Therefore, if someone is going to choose a photo of a celebrity or admired hero at a certain age, he or she should think about the fact that the person in the picture will not change with age, so what he or she looks like in the picture will remain the way the person will look for as long as the tattoo exists.

It is also important to choose a highly skilled artist to do the work. It is better to pay a higher price and get excellent work than it is to skimp and receive a sub par quality tattoo.

Old School

Old school tattoos, also known as traditional or American traditional tattooing, is the oldest type of modern tattoo art being practiced. This type of tattoo uses a very limited color palette, solid black outlines and far less detail that some of the other tattoo styles. This is the type of tattoo work seen a lot in the 1950s, but is still alive and well today, using such popular imagery as hearts, roses and skulls.

New SchoolNew School Tattoo

New school tattoo styles are more whimsical than other tattoo styles, using cartoon images that have been inspired by hip-hop styles and graffiti techniques.  Exaggerated dimensions, bright colors and bubble-type designs characterize this style.
