Lew the Jew Alberts - Tattoo Drawings

Early 20th Century Tattoo Drawings: The original creator of tattoo "flash" was largely unknown. Now a private collection of works by this Jewish tattooer from New York, "Lew the Jew" Alberts (Albert Kurzmann), has come to light. Around 1905 he was the first to make these design sheets commercially available. Operating primarily on New York’s Bowery, Lew constructed some of the earliest electric tattoo machines, and was the first to design and sell printed design sheets to other tattooers. His artwork in this "flash" shows the basic designs of American tattooing, and many are still in use today. A must Have!
