Vancouver Maritime Museum’s Controversial Tattoo & Scrimshaw exhibit
The museum is showcasing an exhibition called TATTOOS & SCRIMSHAW: The Art of The Sailor !
“The modern, western tattoo evolved from the early days of global exploration, when ancient mariners sailed to South Pacific communities and were introduced to the idea of body art. The practice of self-decoration became an artistic expression for sailors and an opportunity to create permanence in an otherwise unpredictable occupation. Images of boats, women or items from home have morphed over the years into the tattoo artistry seen today.”
