Actually these are some traditional tattoos that have a slight difference to make them trendy.
First off, my apologies if this comes across as rude. My intent is merely to be informative. Most of these are not “traditional” tattoos. For example, “tribal” tattoos are their own style altogether. Other styles are “neotraditional”, “asian”, “celtic”, and “realism”. A really new trend seems to be “watercolor”. The list could go on. Personally I prefer traditional/neotraditional styles which is why I felt I had to comment. Please do more research before writing an article on a subject you are unfamiliar with. Also, unless it’s a piece derived from flash, it is not okay to copy someone elses tattoo (as you suggest). You can use one as inspiration, but that is all. Furthermore, many tattoo artists create flash sheets which they intend on using each design only once. After a design is claimed, it remains one of a kind on that customer. Please don’t encourage copying!
