Chicago Tattoo Supply House


Presented in this book are objects I have collected that came from the Chicago tattoo supply house. Made in the 1930s and 1940s they allow us to look into the past – at what tattooing was like this period. Self-billed as the “World’s largest manufacturers of tattooing supplies” for all purposes, CTSH promoted products in an array of eye-catching flyers and attractive catalogs filled with photos and illustrations, useful information, and numerous design sheets. CTSH supplied tattooers with quality products for nearly two decades.

5 ¼ x 8 ¼ full color, soft cover, 150 pages with an introduction by the book’s creator, tattooer Nick Ackman.
