The Northwest Tattoo Museum (NTM) is an excellent free information educational outreach resource base for anyone curious about the craft of tattooing, those needing guidance in tattoo endeavors, tattoo history, or getting a tattoo. The NTM tattoo historian and curator (Jay Brown) is a Master of Tattoo certificate holder with 30 years in the Craft. He can provide a personal tour of the museum or schedule private sessions. The NTM collection is largely representative of the last century of mainstream tattoo subculture in North America. The collection showcases historical photographs, documents, flash, tattoo implements, tattoo related artifacts, an expanding library, an archive of historic documents, etc. The museum has been diversifying and incorporating indigenous tattoo history from North America and worldwide.
