Somehow it seems the customization of tattoo led to it losing some of its grit. Old school tattoos have the bold line / solid color look that comes across even if its 80 years old. That washed out, faded look that traditional tattoos have are something so many people avoid but is visually pleasing to me, like the ones on your grandfathers fore arms or your barbers knuckles.
I look forward to the day I can sit among the ranks of these fine gentlemen.
