Do you love art? Maybe you like lots of color or no color at all. Maybe you like something simple or something extravagant. It might be a flower, a butterfly, an eagle or a face. But this isn’t just any form of art. It’s the art of tattooing. Although, this is not just your average tattoo shop. It’s the Triangle Tattoo & Museum in Fort Bragg.

Founded in 1986, this museum is located in one of the town’s original Victorian storefronts. Bring in your favorite cup of joe and prepare to spend hours browsing the many tattoo displays. You can view tattoo exhibits ranging from portraits of Maori in New Zealand with traditional “Moko” tattoos beginning from the 1800s, the Women’s Wall, which features portraits of tattooed women from different cultures and eras to the American Patriotic Tattoo that features tattoo designs from World War I to the present. You can also view displays of hand tools used for tattooing before electric tattooing machines were invented as well as a variety of electric tattooing machines including electromagnetic machines from around the world and prison style rotary machines. There is also the Japanese Tattoo exhibit with a display of antique hand tattoo instruments, portraits of the tattoo artists and a sprinkling of their work.
