NOTE: Original antique tattoo flash sheets like the one shown here have been
increasing in value at an extraordinary rate over the last 10 years. And with
the growing interest in tattoo art in the mainstream art world, there is no end
in sight - making this a very solid investment for the forward-thinking
collector. Bottom line: there's only so much of this kind of priceless artwork
in existence - and they ain't making no more! Soon enough they will all be
unobtainable and sitting in museums.
Feel free to make an offer.
