Classic Tattoo Stencils 2: More Designs in Acetate

By Cliff White

In this large, thick hardcover book from Flash from the Bowery and Classic Tattoo Stencils author Cliff White, the unearthing of authentic celluloid acetate stencils, a long-term project by the Long Island tattoo shop owner and memorabilia collector, continues. In this compilation, thousands more artifacts emerge from "deeper inside the trunk" and expose a sprawling collection from the late '50s and early '60s.

These facsimiles, represented in their original color and tone, include timeless designs such as anchors and panthers; famous cartoon characters; wizards, unicorns, and leprechauns; cultural and historical symbols from Marine Corps logos to Asian designs; and hundreds of other styles too numerous to mention. Marks of original artists shine through in the leaves of this volume, revealing the etchings of rough craftsmen of a half-century ago and evoke stories of weathered sailors and hardscrabble New Yorkers.
