Lyle Tuttle was born in Chariton, Iowa on October 7, 1931 and grew up in Ukiah, California. At the age of fourteen he purchased his first tattoo for $3.50 (equivalent to $50 today). In 1949, he began tattooing professionally. In 1954 he opened his own studio in San Francisco. His first shop was open for 35 years. Lyle tattooed Janis Joplin, Cher, Jo Baker, Paul Stanley and many other notable musicians, actors, and celebrities.
This Ink Set is no longer available from Eternal's website. We were lucky to have acquired this set. But would like to pass it on to someone who would really treasure it.
