Back in the Tatoosdays.....

On sunday took a little trip over to the Seaport museum's sailor tattoo exhibit. It was pretty neat to see some of the artifacts that they had on display and read the history behind them. The gallery was far from mind blowing, and miles from from being amazing, but it was a nice little showing of different people and times that have influenced modern day tattooing. I am into history of all sorts of counter cultures, they fascinate me, my friends and I spend endless nights on street corners sharing stories and tales of these sort. Well without any further a due and more of my 2 lincolns.....

Old time flash that still is relevant in todays tattooing, there were a lot of tattoo flash paintings from 1890 and 1900 that still to todays standards are awesome.
