New School tattoos
New school tattoos are a fascinating amalgamation of American Traditional and Neo-traditional with a whimsical aesthetic of anime, graffiti, Manga, and cartoons. If you're looking for fun (outside of the beating heart of Nashville—Broadway), we've got you covered (or, shall we say, inked). New school tattoos are FUN. They make a statement through vivid colors, eccentric motifs, and bold line-work.
Unsurprisingly, new school tattoos originated on the West Coast in the late '70s. Since then, they've made it all the way to the East Coast at Hart & Huntington Nashville, and everywhere in between.
New school tattoos incorporate bold line work and oversized designs much like Old School tattoos. Borrowing from pop culture, mysticism, cartoons, and fantastical creations, if you like to push the envelope and make a statement, new school tattoos are for you. We’re talking dragons, unicorns, wizards, Betty Bop, Disney, Star Wars, SpongeBob, Magna—you get the idea.
Thanks to advances in technology, tattoo artists can pull in a range of eye-catching colors from neon to fluorescent. Artists use bold black lines to keep colors in place and the usually large size of new School tattoos helps make them recognizable.
If you're thinking of a new school tattoo, you're probably fun and adventurous. So, you'll fit right in here at Hart & Huntington Nashville. Trust us, setting up a consultation with one of our New school tattoo artists is a great time.
