"bold will hold"

Old School tattooing is characterized by bold outlines, heavy black shading, limited primary colours and "standard" designs like black panthers, hearts, daggers, pin-up girls and roses.

It's had a major upsurge in popularity in recent years, with some saying it has gotten too trendy. Traditional tattooing, at its core, is directly responsible for the 'new school' mentality, which shares the bold lines and bright colours, but strays in subject matter.
