Museum plans exhibit on military tattoos



The Clark County Historical Museum wants to hear from local veterans who can share the stories behind their military-inspired tattoos.

The skin art could be part of an exhibit — “Vet Ink: Military Inspired Tattoos!” — scheduled to open early in 2013. It will feature local people who have tattoos from past or current military service.

Those interested in participating can click on the link at Clark County Historical Museum for a form.

Submit a completed form and a photograph of the artwork by mail or in person to the museum, 1511 Main St., Vancouver, WA, 98660. They also can be emailed to, using “tattoo” in the subject line. For information, call 360-993-5679.

Those selected for the exhibit must be available for interviews and photo sessions from Jan. 2-11, 2013.
