Bert Grimm's Iconic Tattoo Flash

October 25, 2012


Bert Grimm (1900-1985) was best known for tattooing sailors out of Nu-Pike in Long Beach, CA during the 1950s and 60s. This painting by Milan-based tattoo artist Joe Tartarotti is just one of the many awesome Grimm-inspired images out there (not to mention the rest of Tartarotti's flash, which is definitely worth a look too).
