Flash from the Bowery:
Classic American Tattoos, 1900 - 1950
Published by Schiffer, November 18, 2011
Author Cliff White
Reproduced in this book are the images of the original acetate rubbings from Charlie Wagner's turn of the century tattoo shop.
The imagery of this classic flash preserves the origins of American tattoos, when tattoo art was transfered to the client from one of these templates via an acetate stencil.
This rich heritage of folk art has more than 900 individual pieces of flash that provide commentary on the shop's clientele and reveal some of the social, economic and political ideas of the time.
This is an exciting collection early American flash and a necessary book for the tattoo artist, aficionado and student.
Size: 9.7 x 2.1 x 12.3 inches
