Tattoos date back to ancient times and could be used to identify tribal affiliation, to identify the outcast of society, or to identify your status.
Eldridge formed the Tattoo Archive in 1980 in Berkeley, California. He and his associates continue their goal of promoting tattoo history in their new Winston-Salem location.
