Traditional Tattoos at lovelandtattoo.com
American traditional tattoos are an American institution. Traditional tattoos are a very distinctly American phenomenon that developed here in the United States circa - The end of the 19th century. Characterized by the use of smooth bold outlines and a very limited color pallet by todays tattoo industry standards. One aspect of the traditional tattoo story that is oft overlooked is the aspect of the intervention and invention of tattoo Flash sheets. many a modern tattooer was broken in and introduced to the modern tattoo aesthetic through the recreation and repetitious drawing and redrawing and watercolor painting of these very designs. This style was a mashup of many smaller lesser known aesthetics that were all incorporated to inform modern traditional tattoos and styles in general. We specialize here at Loveland Tattoo Studio in the preservation and continued application of these types of traditional tattoo styles and strive to continue the legacy of our previous godfathers from here on the West Coast in Southern California.
