We’re a little late to report this, but Needles and Sins reported back on June 2nd that Herbert Hoffman passed away at 91. Hoffman was famous for his anchor tattoos, and people traveled great distances just to get a signed Hoffman anchor. Hoffman also received a great deal of acclaim for his photography, and he had several photography books published, featuring both his subjects, and his subject matter. Hoffman was often referred to as a “friendship collector” and he was always willing to talk with, and befriend anyone who shared his passion for tattoos. Hoffman was legendary in the tattoo industry, and his death marks the end of an era. Herbert Hoffman, you will be missed.
