Grimm Times

I was sent this article from a 1977 issue of The Oregonian a while ago from Carmen Forquer who has been researching the life of her Great Uncle, who is also one of my favourite tattooist of all time, the legendary Bert Grimm.

From what I can tell Bert was a combination of talent and a huge character. His career in tattooing lasted over 60 years and was well known for tattooing Bonnie and Clyde and members of Al Capone's gang.
