Pops began his tattooing career in California in 1967. Tattooing in shops, bars in an arcade and a mobile tattoo shop that allowed him to tattoo anywhere that was available. The industry has taken him to many states, many shops and many different and crazy places throughout his lifetime. Opening Modern Tattoo Ltd. and the Museum of American Tattooing in 1987, has allowed Pops to showcase the history of tattooing in the many items that are displayed. The Collection of legendary tattoo artist August "Cap" Coleman is the showcase of the Museum. Pops book, THE COLLECTION, is a compilation of the Coleman Collection, along with stories of tattooing, the Military, the Circus and how tattooing affected these areas. If you get a chance, stop by the Museum and look around. Pops is always ready to tell a great story! The flash in this photo was done by artist Don Chuck Carvalho of Brazil.
