Although Leonard “Stoney” St. Clair’s name is universally known amongst the tattoo artist’s community, little of Stoney’s flash has been published or seen. Recently, Columbus Tattooer Joey Knuckles was able to acquire over 30 years of Stoney’s flash and effects. Stoney uniquely wrote the date and location of each painting on the back (as well as when he would touch up or add to a painting). Volume 2 contains a practically complete picture of Stoney’s beautifully hand painted flash from his time in Columbus, Ohio (1970-1981) and includes flash, photographs (tattoo trunks stencils and machines), and personal and professional effects from Stoney’s life and work.
