New School Tattoos- The History

The history of the New School Tattoo is the after the Second World War tattoos started to be associated with gangsters. Bad Sterilisation caused an outbreak of Hepatitis in 1961 and the tattoo scene was forced even further underground. When the new legislation came into action and the heath codes were put into place, there was an interest by a younger generation which is why we have the new school style as we do today.
