From Art to Ink – The History of Tattoo styles

There are many styles of artwork that we specialise in here at Victims. Each artist has their own flare in different areas.

Traditional tattoo styles centre around bright colours and bold lines.

Iconic designs feature roses, anchors, lady heads and love hearts. Sailor Jerry, Don Ed Hardy, Bert Grimm and Lyle Tuttle are some artists who explicitly use traditional styling and developed the Traditional trend.
