Remembering Mother. At the Tattoo Archive we believe that everyday is Mother’s Day! No other member of the family is honored more in the tattoo world than Mother. A Mother tattoo is often a young person’s first tattoo. Not only does it show their unconditional love but it’s a safe tattoo; I mean how much could mom complain? This exhibit will feature photographs, flash designs, newspaper articles, magazine covers and much more as we remember Mother. This exhibit is free to the public and will run through September 30, 2017. This exhibit will run through September 30, 2017.

After 50 years of collecting tattoo memorabilia from around the world, the time has come for us to start selling original, and often one-of-a-kind items from the Tattoo Archive's collection. These items will be listed in the Collector's Corner section of our Online Store and will range from paper ephemera to frames, tubes, machines, flash, business cards, etc. We’ll be adding items to the Collector’s Corner regularly, so please stop by often.
