Old School and Dagger Tattoos: Favorite Classic Tattoos
Getting a tattoo is considered a rite of passage for anyone. It can mark a beginning of a new path in life, a commemoration of an event or an end to a toxic relationship. Whatever the reason is, getting a tattoo is a major decision that you need to think about very carefully before you do it.
One decision you have to make is what kind of tattoo you will get. With so many choices and resources for tattoo art, this could be a tough decision to make. These are some of the classic favorites that people ask for when they get a tattoo for the first time.
Old school and dagger tattoos are classic examples of tattoos that have transcended time and are still popular today. Both old school and dagger tattoos could sometimes have limited colors, usually black with some red and are a lot easier to do than other colored tattoos.
Purists of the tattoo art are also partial to getting old school and dagger tattoos at least once in their lifetime.
Words or quotes are another popular choice if you want something more profound. “Love” and “hope” are some of the most popular words used for tattoos especially for women while words depicting strength and protection are the words that men prefer.
Whatever design you choose, it is a decision that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Pick a good classic tattoo that represents something important in your life.
