William Ettlin was a successful photographer in New York City. From about 1889 until his death in 1911, he operated a thriving studio at 17 Chatham Square in the heart of the Bowery. He shared this location with Carl Schultze, a veteran photographer and owner of the Schultze Photo Equipment Co.

Ettlin's studio was just footsteps from pioneering tattooers Prof. Samuel O’Reilly, “Electric” Elmer Getchell, Charlie Wagner and Lew Alberts. Because of his close proximity to their shops —and no doubt his prowess behind the camera— he often found himself at their service. Indeed, for several years in the early 1900s Ettlin documented New York tattoo culture at its height.
