F. W. Liberty's Tattoo Trade Card

The design for this business card was first used by Boston tattooer Edward W. Liberty (1883-1957), aka "Dad" Liberty, in the early 1920s. His son Frank (1902-1956) used the same card, but added a dirty joke on the reverse. For more information on the Liberty family and the tattoo artists of  Scollay Square, check out www.tattooedboston.com
