The old school tattoo is the tattoo design that comes from the earlier time of tattoo art
introduced especially in the western area. It started its popularity during the first and also the
Second World War because most of the returned soldiers had this tattoo. Most designs of this
old school style come with bold color and simple design that is pretty easy to make.
Some of the popular old school tattoo designs that had been well known in the past were the
design of panthers, roses, nautical stars, anchors and also daggers. These designs were widely
popular in the 1950s, but lately the trend of the old school design has come forward especially
in the hands of the young generation.
The old school tattoo designs don’t come up meaninglessly. In fact most of them have their
special meanings that represent the person feeling or hope. Take the example of nautical
star tattoo design that is considered as the symbol of good health in Ireland although it also
has been used by the gay and lesbian community on their wrist to mark their disposition. The
heart tattoo design is also popular and it simply shows the person feeling to their love in such a
symbolic way that shows different emotions.
