Tattoo Art Trading Cards

Tattoo Art Trading Cards, the first set of its kind, was introduced to non-sport trading card collectors, April 21 & 22 at the Philly Non-Sports Card Show. The 25 card starter/base set was extremely well received by collectors at the show. Next, Frank Eachus Publishing introduced the set to tattoo enthusiasts at the Hell City Tattoo Fest in Columbus, Ohio to yet another warm reception. “The set is popular with collectors due to the fantastic art of the tattoo artists,” said Frank Eachus of Frank Eachus Publishing. The set is also popular with tattoo enthusiasts for the very same reasons. 

     I started working on the idea two years ago. Tattooing is much more socially acceptable today, and the art lends itself well to the trading cards, making beautiful collector cards,” says Eachus. “It’s very gratifying to see such a great response to a brand new concept. Hopefully, this set will help to interest more collectors in the non-sport collector card hobby,” says Eachus.

     The initial release of Tattoo Art Trading Cards consists of cards depicting the fantastic art of some of the most talented artists in the world. The history of tattooing is also included in the initial release, featuring historical benchmarks of the art of tattooing, and turn-of-the-century tattooed circus performer posters reprinted on the trading cards.

     Frank Eachus Publishing plans on a fall release of 6-card packs to follow up the very popular initial release. “The packs will feature more great artists, tattooed models, autographed cards, special artist sketch cards, and more chase cards,” says Eachus.
