The old school tattoo comes from the American tradition. It is characterized by drawings made with thick strokes, generally blacks or solid blue. The colors are flat with few shadows. One of the founders of the old school culture was Norman Keith Collins, known worldwide as Sailor Jerry. These tattoos were very common especially among sailors, but their beauty has made them popular in all environments. In fact, today it has become a characteristic style, easily recognizable and very popular. The most popular subjects depict cherries, nautical stars, pin ups, jellyfish, swallows, hearts, anchors, roses, galleons and eagles.
