CHARLIE WAGNER NEW YORK CITY TATTOO ARTIST

Charlie Wagner, one of America’s great tattoo legends tattooed in New York City from the 1890s up until his death in 1953. Working on the Bowery in lower Manhattan, Wagner took over the shop space at 11 Chatham Square

One of Wagner’s more important contributions was his tattoo machine ideas that he patented in 1904. This patent was the first tattoo machine patented with coils in a vertical position, that is, in line with the tube assembly. This was a major improvement on machine design; in fact most machines built today use this alignment. Charlie Wagner was a tattoo machine builder and had a tattoo supply business. The patenting of his machine idea in 1904 may have been the spark that set off his supply business. We don’t know if this 1904 tattoo machine was ever manufactured in any numbers and to date, none are known to exist.
