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.

    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...
