The Rememberance of a Legend...

By

CareyAnne

Somewhere in the midst of the late 70s - early 80s, my (late) Mother and Father had met Charlie. My Father had a Harley at the time and he told me that he rode with Charlie quite a few times. My parents described Charlie as "an amazing artist and a very intelligent man - with a heart of gold."

I have so many friends who have had the opportunity to be in the presence of Tattoo Charlie and fortunately, I finally got to meet him myself. My sister, our best friend and I had walked into his original shop (on Berry Blvd.) and I first saw this burly man with a long beard - which reminded me of my Father and I was nervous just to even talk to him. But as I sat down and discussed a pattern that I was considering having tattooed on my ankle, I noticed how gentle this man really was - with his words and advice.

He truly was a kind-hearted man - just as my Father was. This just proves that you can't judge a book by its cover.

Charlie had made such an impression on Louisville (and other cities) for his respect and passion for art and also for his loving personality. He was such a caring person. I know that his family and the community will never forget the man that made such an impact on so many lives.


For the Wheeler family -

I am deeply saddened to hear of your loss. Believe that he is now in a much better place and will always be smiling down upon you and watching over you.

Respectfully, for those of you who have had art done by Charlie, you have a permanent (and beautiful) masterpiece to represent the memory of such a wonderful man, a true legend...Charles "Tattoo Charlie" Wheeler.

I am certain that I can speak on the behalf of so many others that Louisville just won't be the same without Tattoo Charlie, but his memory will always remain.

In Sympathy and Respect,
