OFF THE WALLS of S&W
An 11 x 8.5 hardcover book of tattoo flash compiled from Civ's private collection. The sheets in this 124 page book were taken directly off the walls of S&W Tattoo, one of New York's oldest tattoo shops. The 489 designs featured in this book have not seen the light of day in 15 years, but its been long enough and its time to share these treasures.
I hope this book serves as inspiration along with being a witness to a time in tattooing long gone. A time when tattoo shops had their own personal style. A time before the internet and mass production. A time when tattooers and their artwork were regionally unique.
A tribute to the lasting legacy of the Moskowitz brothers.
