A prison tattoo machine improvised from ballpoint pen, small motor, and some electrical wire as part of the #tattooNHMLA exhibit at @NHMLA. These rotary prison machines usually use a motor taken from a cassette recorder or electric razor, and connected them to a guitar string or sewing needle that travels up and down the barrel of a ballpoint pen.

A feature about @nhmla’s TATTOO: An Exhibition in the Long Beach Press Telegram back in November 2017! @presstelegram!! Love seeing @karibarba’s tattooed silicone arm in this article. We miss the exhibition, but feel so lucky that we were able to contribute parts of our shop’s history into it! Did you get a chance to see the it while it was here?

Renovating and rearranging our museum area of the shop. Can’t wait to see how it turns out when we finish! Does this neon sign look familiar to you?

Flash back to my son @dat_ash_doh talking to visitors and answering questions @nhmla about Filipino tribal tattoos when the artists of @spiritualjourneytattoo were guest-spotting for the Return to Grandmother's Beauty event. #ProudMama of a #TattooApprentice #tattooNHMLA #MarkOfTheFourWavesTribe #SpriritualJourneyTattoo #FilipinoTribalTattoo #Filipinos #Pintados #MarkOfTheFour #ApatNaAlon 🌊🌊🌊🌊 #FBF

Taking on some history, education, and ink inspiration through the Tattoo exhibit at the Natural History Museum of LA. There was much more to see than could be photographed. Yeah, 3️⃣ is under UV light #TattooNHMLA

Tattoos have a life of their own. More than beautiful designs, tattoos are reminders of the unique stories that can be told on the human skin.
I was moved by Uriel Sinai's photography of #4559 at Auschwitz - in order to remember and memorialize the horrors of the holocaust - may it never happen again. #history

Thanks to all my new museum friends & my tattooer friends who made #TattooNHMLA possible. It was the biggest project I’ve ever worked on & an incredible honor. Everyone in this photo now has a matching dinosaur tattoo. #howdoyoumuseum 📷: @neltronic808

What an incredible journey it’s been.
Thank you Los Angeles for exploring tattoo history with us, for sharing your own tattoo stories, and (some of you out there!) for letting NHMLA become a part of your own personal tattoo tapestry.
So many incredible individuals put their unique mark on this exhibit, there are more of you than Instagram will actually allow us to tag...
To our Parlor artists, our lenders and collectors, to those who spoke at our lectures and panels: we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your support, your wisdom, and your talent.
#tattooNHMLA might be over, but the memories, and those sweet T. rex tattoos, will last a lifetime. 🤘

Thursday night's panel discussion and closing party at @nhmla was magical! It was so incredible to listen to these powerful women discuss their experience and role in tattoo history and the tattoo industry. @karibarba, @roxx_____, @mmifflin, and the moderator, @cara_santa_maria absolutely killed it! It was an honor to hear their stories and thoughts. Thank you to @nhmla for creating such an impactful and important exhibit.

Today I paid a visit to the LA Museum of Natural History and checked out the featured Tattoo Exhibit! It was one of the coolest exhibits I’ve ever been to and is definitely worth seeing if you’re in the LA area. Better hurry though, this is the last weekend the exhibit will be held! #lamuseumofnaturalhistory #tattooexhibit #tattoos #tattooart #losangeles #thingstodoinlosangeles #tattoonhmla

“A tattoo is a true poetic creation, & is always more than meets the eye. As a tattoo is grounded on living skin, so its essence emotes a poignancy unique to the mortal human condition.” #tattoonhmla

A #TBT to this vintage elegantly drawn tattoo design by @karibarba! She has been tattooing for over 39 years and will be celebrated tonight for her pioneering status in the world of tattooing.

"The Elder Wand," he said, and he drew a straight vertical line on the parchment. "The Resurrection Stone," he said, and he added a circle on top of the line. "The Cloak of Invisibility," he finished, enclosing both line and circle in a triangle, to make the symbol that so intrigued Hermione. "Together," he said, "the Deathly Hallows." According to legend, he who possesses these three artefacts would become the Master of Death.

Since the swelling has gone down🖤
I'm so obsessed with being able to look at my arm and see not only my parents but, really, my whole family. Music and theatre raised me and although it's not necessarily the path I'm on anymore, it will always be with me 🌻

When theatre (my mom) met jazz (my dad) they created me and I have inherited talent and personality from both of them. I'm not done with this arm but this is a fantastic start. I finally got the bass tattoo for my dad that I've been dreaming of thanks to @opal_tattoo 💛
She is seriously the best. I have so much love and respect for this girl. Please, if you ever want work done check out @throughyourskin. They are filled with the most talented and realist artist. 💗💗💗💗 #tattooNHMLA
