With the incredible plethora of designs available to the average patron, the customer often glances over traditional tattoo art in favor of something flashier and more in tune with current style. However, tattoo artists such as Tim Stellers work to preserve the artistry of the past.
According to The Sacramento Bee, Stellers’ shop resembles “an Americana museum really, of pin-ups, cowgirls, cartoon characters such as Betty Boop and Popeye, twisting snakes and dragons, flag-clutching martial eagles, geishas, mermaids, clipper ships in full sail, menacing dreadnoughts and other survivors from tattooing’s past.”
Stellers won a Heart of an Old Tattooer award two years ago in Las Vegas as well.
