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? We are SO excited to have received this from @nhmla’s TATTOO: An Exhibition. ✨😍 #nhmla #tattoonhmla #dlba #outerlimitstattoo #bertgrimms #pike #lbc #longbeachtattoo #longbeach #historicalsociety

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

Super excited to get the old @nhmla logo as part of the #tattooNHMLA exhibit last week from the awesome @megmcniel to celebrate 12 years with the #dinosaurinstitute

Awesome time yesterday at the #tattoonhmla exhibit with my crew. Beautiful art and an amazing exhibit #tattoo #nhmla #inkaddict #needmorework #cantstopwontstop #sundayfunday #squad #sakyanttattoo #boldwillhold #oldskooltattoo #tattoohistory

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
