The Portland Art Musem, Tattoos and You


Got ink? The Portland Art Museum wants to see it. Beginning mid-June, Marking Portland: the Art of Tattoo will showcase your mom hearts, '90s tribal bands and tramp stamps as a way to present tattoos as a historical art form and a way to create a sense of culture and community.

Museum curators ask Portlanders and people with ink from the rose city to upload shots of their ink to their flickr account. A select few will be shown as a multimedia presentation in the Whitsell Auditorium.

Marking Portland will be making its mark on the museum through September, so check out the programs, speakers and films meant to “expand the dialogue around tattoo and its role in adornment and identification in social and cultural groups.” Ink away, Portland.
