Tattoo magazines have definitely changed but @tattoosfromhistory on Instagram has added some nostalgic images from tattoo magazines of a bygone time, worth a look because it’s kinda interesting and gives you an peek into some recent history of tattooing.
Take the image above (could be a Frazetta composition!), pretty dope compared to the crap we have adorning tattoo magazine covers today! There’s also a few images that show some questionable hygiene practices but hey, it was a different era, with time comes knowledge, we were all smoking on planes back then.
Hopefully with time we’ll see a lot more old magazine images appear on there.
