This book first appeared in 1933 where the majority of people with tattoos were sailors, prostitutes and/or criminals. Venturing from waterfront tattoo parlors to circus midways, author Albert Parry talked to many of the great tattoo artists of the early 20th century about their techniques, including Charlie Wagner, Jack Conway and Edgar Hazzard. Includes great historical index and bibliography and 24 black and white plates plus 2 pages of rare Bob Wicks flash in color.
