Ink on Paper: Author and Tattoo Legend Jonathan Shaw Talks "Vintage Tattoo Flash, Volume II"
Tuesday, October 3, 2017
"Tattoo master, underground art icon, and multi-genre author Jonathan Shaw has returned with a follow-up to his must-have compendium of classic ink iconography Vintage Tattoo Flash. The logically-titled and even more eye-popping and mind-bending Vintage Tattoo Flash, Volume Two (PowerHouse Books) hits the street on October 17, 2017.
Shaw's life is a wild ride like no other. His dad was big band titan Artie Shaw and his mom was movie star Doris Dowling. As a kid in the 1960s, Shaw apprenticed under California tattoo pioneers along the Pike boardwalk before running alongside outlaw LA giants on the order of Jim Morrison, Charles Bukowski, and the Manson Family.
After relocating to New York — where tattooing was illegal — Shaw inked punk rockers and other daring outsiders from his apartment until the 1990s. Once the city dropped its prohibition, Shaw opened Fun City Tattoo on St. Mark's Place and added yet another chapter to his legend." –MERRY JANE
