#tattoo #Collecting museum shop in Winston/Salem, MA

The Tattoo Archive, studio honors the art of the skin |
His Fourth Street storefront, The Tattoo Archive, is part museum, part studio and is without a doubt one of the coolest ways you can spend an afternoon in Downtown Winston-Salem. Whether you're covered in more ink than the carpet at Kinko's or the closest you've come to a tattoo was writing "Buy milk" on the back of your hand, you'll still appreciate Eldridge's passion for the needle-powered art form and his knowledge of the artists who have — literally — left their indelible marks on history.
The walls, shelves and hallways of his shop are covered in paintings and posters, antiques, and one-of-a-kind artifacts, but the earliest pieces of his collection are kept in a more … permanent location. "This all started with the tattoos I wear," Eldridge said. "A sailing ship was my first tattoo, when I joined the Navy."
