Canadian Tattoo History - Fred Baldwin

Recommended Posts

Hey, i'm trying to do a history of Edmonton tattooers at my shop Lucky Strike Tattoo. I've been tracing the lineage back to Fred Baldwin, but can't find a lot of info on him other than he taught Charlie Snow, who taught Jerry Swallow. I'm looking for a more in depth bio on him, like birth and death dates, shop names, Etc...... if anyone has any info, or links to anything that would be greatly appreciated

Welcome!  I don't know if you read French, but this has some information about Fred Baldwin's time in Montreal, though there isn't anything so detailed as the address he worked at.


Have you talked to Nick Wasko in Vancouver?  He seems to be the authority on Canadian tattoo history.
