RIP Tattoo Artist Pioneer and Supplier Darwin Huck Spaulding

By February 6, 2013

Follow me on:

Darwin "Huck" Spaulding Dec. 5, 1928 to Feb. 1, 2013

Car enthusiast, stock car racer, machinest. Dad. Great grandfather. Huck Spaulding was all those sorts of a man.

As a pioneer in the tattooing industry, Spaulding made safety and equipment his focus and became the first worldwide distrubutor of tattoo machines and supplies. Without his contributions and passion, the tattoo industry would have been amiss.

To all the knew him and loved him, may he be remembered and dearly loved. For everyone else, Spaulding leaves behind one of the most treasured books in the tattoo industry and a must-have for any artist, Tattooing A-Z: A Guide to Successful Tattooing and of course, his equipment and supply company Spaulding & Rogers can be found on the Internet here.

Rest in peace.
