The Decades Project

In our first year (2012), we set a goal of producing one poster per month to promote the shop. Life got busy, and we didn’t produce monthly posters in 2013. For 2014, we are re-instating the poster, but we’ve upped the stakes. Welcome to the Decades Project.

Each month’s poster will feature a decade in North American tattoo history. We have partnered with local models, hair stylists, make-up artists and friends to produce a photo shoot representative of every decade from 1900’s to today. Every effort has been made to be historically accurate; hair, make-up, fashion, set, and of course tattoos, will honour the era.

Keep an eye on this site for images of the posters, along with supplemental information that we’ve used to research the eras, including biographies of prominent tattooers of the decade, as well as the brave women who wore ink through the decades, and who have inspired us to do this project.
