Museum extends call for veterans’ tattoos



The Clark County Historical Museum has extended its “recruitment” period for local veterans who can share the stories behind their military-inspired tattoos.

Entries must be received no later than Jan. 5.

The tattoos could be part of a “Vet Ink” exhibit scheduled to open early in 2013. It will feature local people who have tattoos from past or current military service.
