It's the last month to see our current exhibit, "Island Ink: Tattoo Traditions of the Pacific".
"Throughout the Pacific, Islanders are making the ultimate commitment to their cultural heritage and embedding it in their skin. Oftentimes the designs follow the norms set centuries ago, but both culture and art are dynamic and ever-evolving. The tattoos of today exhibit great creativity commonly referencing the old style while simultaneously representing the modern day individual."
