The Story Behind the Tat: Tattoo Art in Central Minnesota
February 13 @ 12:00 am
In order to celebrate the art of tattoo as practiced in Central Minnesota, The Morrison County Historical Society is creating an exhibit along with several ancillary events and products. People in Central Minnesota who have tattoos they would like to share are invited to contact the Morrison County Historical Society.
As an art form, tattoo is positively historic. Found on the remains of Otzi the Ice Man and Egyptian mummies dating back to between 4000 and 3100 BC, people have been inking their bodies with designs for a very long time, indeed. The Morrison County Historical Society would like to learn more about those stories.
Tattoo lovers tend to have multiple tattoos. The historical society would like individuals to choose one that has a compelling story and they will photograph it and capture its story for their upcoming exhibit in April.
The Morrison County Historical Society will be collecting photos and stories until February 14, 2019. Please contact them if you would like to participate.
