Shop Fronts. No matter what your business, your shop front is your face to the world. It speaks about you and your business. For commercial buildings it is one of the most important architectural features. How you decorate them can draw attention to the business. With tattooing becoming more mainstream, tattoo storefronts have changed as well. This exhibit will feature photographs and illustrations of tattoo shop fronts from around the world. It's free to the public and will run through March 31, 2019.


North Carolina Tattoo History. We are proud to announce that we will be giving a presentation on North Carolina Tattoo History at the High Point Public Library on August 26, 2019. This lecture will feature photographs, flash, business cards and other memoriabilia of North Carolina tattooists from the past. This presentation will be at 6:30 pm in the Morgan Room on the first floor of the library at 901 North Main Street, High Point, NC 27262. We'll look forward to seeing you there!


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.
