About The Museum

The study and preservation of tattooing through artifacts.

The museum is the private collection of veteran tattooer Dano Collins and is on display at Bluz Tattooz in Waterford, Michigan. It contains rare tattooing artifacts dating as far back as 1676. Vintage tattoo design sheets (flash), tattoo machines, cultural non-electric hand tattoo tools, and much much more from some of the biggest names in tattoo history are on display. 

Admission Is FREE!

If Dano isn't tattooing while you visit you'll get an amazing walk through of the collection. If he is tattooing you still get to walk through an enjoy the various displays. If you're coming in groups it's best to call ahead so we can be prepared for you. The museum is a bit limited on space. The collection has outgrown the shop!!  :)
