My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about different forms of tattooing and its global impact. Our "hosts" were amazing, genuine and their passion for the art form was refreshing. A must if you are in the area.

The museum is worth a visit. It's small but has lots of personality from the displays to the staff and owners! You learn about and see the world of tattoos. Free but worthy of a donation.

Quirky, free place with everything you ever didn't realize you wanted to know about tattooing. Madame Chinchilla was there for our visit and is an experience in itself. You are invited to watch a tattooing during your visit. Trip to the 60's and beyond. Give...More
