Share Your Tattoo Story | Natural History Museum of Los Angeles

Share Your Tattoo Story

Behind every tattoo, there is a story. With each drop of ink, this body art illustrates the stories of your life, captures triumphs and struggles, signifies life events, holds spiritual meaning, honors friends and family members, and showcases your passions, inspirations, and memories.


Getting permanently tattooed is a serious decision, and NHMLA wants to hear the fascinating stories behind yours.

Share your tattoo photos and stories with the tag #tattooNHMLA – and your post could be featured below, inside the exhibition, or in our marketing campaign. Every tattoo has a story. What’s yours?
