Through the personal stories of 6 community members, Ink sheds light on how tattoo art is an integral part of the historical and cultural fabric of Los Angeles. This exhibition unites multiple local histories — Long Beach, the Pike Amusement Park district, the U.S. Navy, L.A. Chicano culture, and tattoo art.
