Lecture on the History of Tattooing and “The Collection: The Life of Tattoo Artist Cap Coleman”

What do you associate with tattoos?  Sailors? Bad boys? Or the waiter who just served you with his arm completely covered in tattoos?  While previously associated with sailors, tattoos are now an accepted form of body art.  The Mariners’  Museum got started in collecting everything associated with tattoo – photos, tattoo stencils, tattoo instruments – when the major association was with sailors.  The collection today is a major part of popular culture.
