I hand drew replications of Jessie Knight flash with ink pen directly onto the blush pink satin. Jessie Knight learned to tattoo in the 1920s at age 17 by her father while they were in the circus together performing in his sharpshooter acts. Her flash sheets were drawn out in coloured pencil and included a variety of traditional designs, such as butterflies, serpents, peacocks, eagles, ships and floral motifs. Jessie worked without stencils and branded herself as “The World Famous Jessie Knight: Expert Freehand Lady Tattoo Artist” on her business cards.
