Original Tattoo flash art of a Pair of Doves or Love Birds. The art is attributed to Oklahoma Bob and dates around the early 1900's. The colors are wonderful as is the subject.
This is true American Folk art. The drawing area is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" Minor Imperfection in flash paper.
Noted on the back of the art is the attribution. Attributed to: Oklahoma Bob Not much is known about Oklahoma Bob. Tattoo history in Oklahoma is spotty but it is known that Bob and a person named Leon had a shop at 419 West Grand in Oklahoma City, in the early 1900's. American Indian's practiced the art long before the area was settled.
Tattooing was actually illegal in Oklahoma until 2006, however the law was repealed and termed "outdated". Professionally framed with acid free materials and UV filter glass. The frames are black and gold and the matting is black felt. The signature appeared only once on the flash sheet and we have reproduced it and added it to the flash in the frame.
The flash drawing is original. Frame is 8 ¾" x 9 1/2". Like us on face book. The item "Vintage Folk Art Americana Original Tattoo Flash Art Love Birds" is in sale since Wednesday, October 2, 2013.
