FORM wants to take this moment to thank the internet. Internet, you’ve given us access into the world of tattooing in ways we could have never imagined . You’ve helped us produce wonderful lists on Hand Tattoos, Pointillism, Skull Tattoos, Japanese Tattoos, and more. You’ve opened our eyes to some of the world’s best tattoo artists. And most importantly, you’ve allowed us to share our content with tattoo enthusiasts world wide.  Once again, you’re now allowing us to produce a list of traditional tattoos and the artists you need to follow. Thank you internet.

Traditional tattoos began the tattoo revolution in North America early in the 20th century. Names like Sailor Jerry, and Herbert Hoffman have defined our notion and basis of what traditional tattoos really are; Gritty symbols of their popularized origin – WWII, when millions of young American men, were thrust into war. The Japanese invasion of Pearl Harbor, just West of Honolulu, became a crossroads  for millions of servicemen and the home of a heavily inked former Navy man named Norman Collins, aka Sailor Jerry.

Today, thousands of traditional tattoo artists pay respects to it’s origin and evolve the art into new and exciting forms. This list is dedicated to this very group of artists that are doing just that.

Get creative with traditional tattoos by experimenting with colors, text items, and mixed elements to complete your canvas. For some ideas, take a look below at this list of 25 traditional tattoos and the artists behind them. These guys are a must follow.
