American Traditional & Old School Tattoos in Miami
by Oriana Tattoo


Popularized by tattooist Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins in the 1930s, this style is based on bold, clean black outlines and a minimal, well-saturated color palette consisting mainly of primary colors.  Traditional imagery typically consists of skulls, roses, and daggers.


Examples of popular old school tattoo designs include:

  • Native American tattoos

  • Pin-up tattoos

  • Mermaid tattoos

  • Swallow and sparrow tattoos

  • Heart tattoos

  • Anchor tattoos

  • Eagle tattoos

  • Navy and other armed forces symbols

  • Dagger tattoos

  • Rose tattoos



Dark Heavy Strokes and some solid color tattoos can be seen from across the street. If done right can look amazing!
