Museum of Latin American Art: “INK-stories on skin”

Learn about Los Angeles tattoo history, from the Pike, to Pachucos, to the Prison systems, old East LA and into today. Stories of struggle and adversity translated onto the skin through photos, original paintings, acetates, and live tattoo performances in the museum’s “tattoo shop.” Organized by Christopher Brand and Evan Skrederstu, the “tattoo shop” area titled The Legacy of Los Angeles Tattoo is a site-specific mural surrounded by the collaborative work of over 40 tattooers ranging from the deceased masters to living and legendary, to generations on down, who have influenced the industry locally and worldwide.
