Decoding the Tattooist


The Tattooist

During Norman Rockwell’s life (1894-1978) he produced over 4,000 paintings, among these were 332 Saturday Evening Post covers. None of his paintings are more beloved in the tattoo world than his 1944 painting, The Tattooist.

In conjunction with the exhibit currently at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art, the Tattoo Archive presents “Decoding The Tattooist”, which explores in detail Rockwell’s tattoo masterpiece.

Not to be missed is the original painting of The Tattooist which is part of the current exhibit, American Moderns 1910-1960 From O’Keeffe to Rockwell, at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
