I loved designing and tattooing this gypsy for Christina. Traditional tattoos are defiantly some of my favorite to do. They just have a timeless feel that I can't easily explain. I honestly believe it goes beyond it being the main style of early tattoos in the modern era.
Traditional tattoos evoke the same qualities as folk art from cultures all around the world. The bold lines, simplified but strong designs paired with a very primary color palette really works toward that nostalgic timeless appeal.
Anyways both of us were very happy and Christina was a trooper to get it all in one session
