Considered by many to be the Father Of The Electric Tattoo Machine. Paul was an east coast tattooer/machine builder that traveled with the circus sideshows doing tattoos in his early days before settling in Virginia. He was also the cofounder of Spaulding & Rogers tattoo supply. A lot of Pauls frame designs are still very commonly used today, in particular the "J-Frame" & "Black Widow" models.
