"This is something tattooing needs, and as much as possible, our history is being lost every day. This is one of the main reasons I started the Northwest Tattoo Museum project 11 years ago. I have learned it is no small feat, and often takes as much help from the tattoo community as possible."

Jay Brown, Rosini and Brown's Tattoo Arcade

"At The Pike I was tattooed by the best of them, Lou Lewis, Burt Grimm, Owen Jensen. Bob Hayman, The profession of tattooing was a mystery, I was pumping them for information."

Good Time Charlie

"When I got to the Pike in 1980, there were six tattoo shops, I think. They started me at Bert Grimms at the Rose Tattoo which is actually on the Pike itself. I lived in the back of the tattoo shop and it was a little apartment and it was like a hundred years old. Maybe they built it in 1910. The Pike was really a wild place. It was beautiful, the Pike."
