American traditional tattooing is one of the most popular styles in the industry. Known for its bright colors, bold outlines, and clean line work, it is also one of the most easily recognizable styles. Since it has been around for so long now, many artists in today's tattoo scene have been spicing up just exactly what can be done with the traditional style.
Sullen TV wants you to meet Jacob Doney. Based in Grand Terrace, California, Doney is the owner of Envision Tattoo and one hell of a traditional tattooer. A piece by Doney will always showcase beautiful color saturation and intense black contrasting that will help ensure each client's tattoo lasts a lifetime. His style, however, goes beyond the typical conventions of traditional tattooing as he adds more of an illustrative vibe to each piece. Always upholding the bold outlines and black contrasts, however, Doney is sure to render a high quality piece every time.
