I first saw Emil Gundelach in an early 1990s video by photographer/anthropologist Charles Gatewood. His tattoos- decades old and sun faded- were amazing; old pieces by Raven and DeVita and a host of oldschoolers who’s names were lost with him. He was a friend of a friend and though I never had the pleasure of meeting him I occasionally find photos of him in my archives from the tenure of his friendship with Jack Yount.
I’m working on digitizing his appearance in the video, Erotic Tattooing & Body Piercing volume V, for the Sacred Debris site. This entry will be amended with a link when it goes live.
