Snakes, roses, hearts, skulls, ships - I LOVE traditional tattoos and their repetitive and symbolic images.

The other aspect I love about this style of tattoo is its execution - bold black lines, limited natural colors, big shapes and clean shading... artist Richie Clarke nails the techniques needed to create a kick-ass traditional tattoo.

Richie is owner of Forever True tattoo in Liverpool, and his tattoos are just that... when we reach the end of forever, no doubt the solid and striking nature of the traditional form will have stood the test of time.
