THE NORTHWEST TATTOO MUSEUM
    Professionals Dedicated to Documenting & Preserving Tattoo
    History, Culture & Artifacts

    The Northwest Tattoo Museum (NTM) currently exhibits a large growing collection
    of: tattoo machines, flash, business cards, stencils, posters, and many other
    tattoo related objects from 1910 to present; from greats such as:  J.F. Barber, E.E.
    Brown, Ernie Carafa, Cap Coleman, Sailor Jerry Collins, Amund Dietzel, Bert
    Grimm, Henry Goldfeild, Don Ed Hardy, Owen Jensen, Bill Jones, Fred Marquand,
    Nick Melroy, Stan & Walter Moscowitz, Bill Moore, Don Nolan, Cliff Raven, Paul
    Rogers, R.J. Rosini, Jack Rudy, Bob Shaw, Huck Spaulding, Lyle Tuttle, Percy
    Waters, Milton Zeis, and many more.

    The Northwest Tattoo Museum is a 'Not for Profit' venture. Tattooing and
    merchandise sales help offset the cost of rent and utilities. Donations comprise
    the majority of collections objects. Many new items on display were donated by
    tattooers interested in seeing the NTM educate the community about the history of
    tattooing. A large portion of the museums collection is owned by J.A. Brown. The
    NTM is still in the process of inventorying artifacts into an internal collections
    database; as new acquisitions are acquired. The NTM also provides: identification
    and appraisal of historic tattoo items, repair & restoration services on vintage
    tattoo machines, etc.

    If you have a few hours, Jay will bend your ear and give you a private tour. Whether
    you have a personal interest in tattoo history or general questions about tattoos
    and the craft, Jay will have a professional, knowledgeable answer and many
    experiential stories to share.









    The NTM started as a small collection housed in 'A Fine Art Tattoo' in Moscow,
    Idaho. Early  2013, the NTM was moved to it's current location in Coeur d'Alene,
    Idaho; formerly Blue Rose Tattoo. Sadly, a good friend and long time tattooist,
    Robert McNeill closed Blue Rose after 12 years.  Robert agreed the Blue Rose
    building was appropriate for the NTM given the shop history and memorable
    mural of Norman Rockwell’s “The Tattooist” on the north side of the building. This
    is the largest reproduction of this piece that we know of...we are going to contact
    Guinness...
