While wandering around the sleepy North Coast town of Fort Bragg, consider a permanent souvenir from the stellar artists
Mr. G, Niki Needles, and Nicola at Triangle Tattoo & Museum on Main Street. Climb up the bright red stairway to the museum and you will
feel enveloped by the spirit, history and excitement of Tattoo.
Founded in 1986, Triangle Tattoo
& Museum celebrates their 35th year
of tattooing in Fort Bragg. One of
only a few museums in the world
dedicated to Tattoo History,
this unique collection is fittingly
housed in one of the town’s original
Victorian storefronts. On display are
striking, vintage exhibits of tattoo
artifacts. Many cultures are represented including the Maori, Japanese, Native American, South Seas,
European and American tattoos.
Mr. G & Madame Chinchilla are world-famous tattoo artists and historians quoted in the New York Times & other publications, and were featured in Discovery Channel’s 1st Tattoo documentary, “Tattoo, Beauty, Art and Pain.”
The Museum is free and open 7 days a week from 12 to 6pm. Children are welcome. Triangle hosts many world-recognized visiting artists from around the globe. Dr. Lars Krutak, anthropologist at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History noted in his visit: “One of the few places in the United States where you can learn about the history of this ancient form of human cultural expression is at Fort Bragg’s very own Triangle Tattoo & Museum.” This is the place to meander and view for anyone curious about the art and history of tattooing. Educational video documentaries play daily… Be Art with a Pulse!
