Last Of The Bowery Scab Merchants
Description: LAST OF THE BOWERY SCAB MERCHANTS is a 2 CD set by Walter and Doug Moskowitz. Famed tattoo artist Walter Moskowitz has been gone five years now, but his son Doug (with not a tattoo in sight!), has released a series of audio recordings in which Walter Moskowitz shares the history of tattooing on New York City's lower East side, and the origins of tattooing on Long Island, with no holds barred (translation: explicit language and mature topics). Doug is available to talk about his dad and his dad's work, as is Doug's brother, Marvin, who still tattoos on Long Island today. This compilation of interviews with Walter Moskowitz, along with commentary on the CD as well as in the program notes by some of the leading tattoo historians today, is a classic oral history of immigration, tattooing, and family.
