Ads for E. J. Miller's supply business

Ads for E. J. Miller's supply business were seen in Billboard Magazine and Police Gazette as early as 1924, seen here is a letterhead from 1931, courtesy Ohio Tattoo Museum. Miller's supply business was modeled after the successful formula that Percy Waters pioneered. As a matter of fact, the machines that Miller sold were probably Waters' "No Name" model. Miller did offer a few items that were unique to that era, like his white enameled machines and business card cuts. He was one of the first to offer adhesive tape for bandages (we'll skip this one for now because of its awkward aspect ratio) Image provided by The Tattoo Archive, www.tattooarchive.com #tattoo #tattoohistory #tattooarchive #tattooeducation
