One would say that the Neo-Traditional tattoo style is relatively one of the new terms in the tattoo world. Also there are people who describe neo-traditional tattoo designs as a combination of old school and new school directions. When you look at a neo-traditional tattoo you can clearly see the roots of the good old traditional American style. Although neo-traditional tattoos look similar to traditional ones in some way, neo brings cool and lively designs jumping off the skin.

Meanwhile both the old school and the new school tattoos feature standard subjects like eagles, daggers, skulls, animals and plants, the tiger tattoo is becoming more and more popular in the neo-traditional art. Tiger is a big, powerfull and honored spirit animal and a totem. The tiger spirit animal symbolizes primal instincts, unpredictability, and ability to trust yourself. Tiger tattoos can be a form of your self-expression, your animal totem, or just a piece of art on your body.
