Little is known of C.H. Fellowes other than he tattooed by hand at the turn of the century. All that remains of him is a hand tattooing kit and a sketch book that were found in Providence Rhode Island in 1966. Fellowes sketch book was published in 1971 by the Pyne Press under the title “The Tattoo Book”. It is out of print and very hard to find but here are a few pictures from the original.
