Default What Is The "New Tribal"?

Don't take this as being anti-tribal. I appreciate some good blackwork.

What I mean is this.

When the scratcher issue started becoming a major deal due to certain auction and online retail sites selling cheapo kits to the idiots, Tribal was their chosen weapon.

Later they moved to Bad (and I mean really bad) Japanese-ish work.

What is the most recent style of (usually pretty bad) work that you are seeing on your local track suit, burberry and elizabeth duke wearing character?

In my part of the cosmos, it seems to be "Footballer" sleeves. B&G religious stuff, usually involving a set of "Rosemary Beads" (sic).

What are you seeing around your parts?

Koi's. Dont get me wrong, when done right they look great but seen so many bad ones lately. Also seems to be the answer for all cover ups now.

Black script, everywhere. I've also seen more and more horrible attempts at Traditional/old school (the cheek of it!) with really bad attempts at diamonds and nautical stars.

"This Too Shall Pass" usually spelled 'to' or 'passt'.

Its GOT to be B+G religious nonsense. Catholic imagery on people who have no idea what it represents. Rosemary beads. I have been genuinely asked for "dem rosemary beads innit". Doves, praying hands, only god can judge me, cherubs(fat naked babies, why????).
