A young Charlie Wagner tattooing at his shop. Located at 223 1/2 Bowery, New York City.
"Sometime between April and September of 1902 Charlie had moved his tattoo shop to 223 ½ Bowery, on the west border of the LES tenement district near the Bowery Mission.
At the 223 1/2 Bowery location, in 1904, Wagner devised an electric tattoo machine based on a dental plugger and electric bell, and obtained the second American patent on record (likely with help from fellow LES denizen, Lew Alberts aka Albert Morton Kurzman)."
