You can learn about tattoos. You can get a tattoo. Or you do can both at a tattoo pop-up at the Linq Promenade.
Its galleries devoted to American tattoo art through the decades sit beside playful, interactive features.
Among the attractions:
►“My Tattoo, My Story,” an exhibit at which people share personal stories about their tattoos.
►The Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum mini-museum, which shares the works and history of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, who began hand-poking tattoos in 1925. He became a legendary tattoo artist in Honolulu.
►Live body mapping, which turns a guest’s body into a three-dimensional canvas onto which body painting and tattoos are projected.
►The Ink Pool Party, a tattoo-themed ball pit for grown-ups.
The pop-up includes more than 500 works by dozens of tattoo artists from around the world. Forty so-called “clones,” including one of the Statue of Liberty, are also showcased, replete with body ink.
Tattoo’d America, which launched April 18, is open 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays-Wednesdays and 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Thursdays-Sundays until Aug. 30.
General admission tickets cost $29.
