The name New School in translation into Russian means «New School». Consequently, studying the New School tattoo style, we can say that it is a more modern descendant of the “old school”. A distinctive feature of the new cheekbone is the selection of the outlines of the sketch and coloring the finished drawings with bright colors.

appearance history

This style of tattoos was born relatively recently, in the early 70's in California. It's just that once tattoo artists decided to go beyond simple, realistic and sometimes even a little boring images, diluting them with brighter, livelier and more beautiful drawings. This is how the new school style appeared.

Characteristics

The main distinctive feature of the new school style is the ability to manifest unlimited imagination, humor and abstraction. This style does not have too rigid a framework or design restrictions, so you can safely fill whatever you want. The main indicator of high-quality execution of a tattoo in this style is clean, even ideal outlines, a sense of color and dense color.

It should be noted that a tattoo of a new cheekbone can be of any size and can be applied to the human body in any place. After all, even the smallest drawing will be clearly visible due to its bright and juicy color.

Derek Turcotte is considered one of the best teachers at the new school. Some of his works are:
