Tattoo film festival

The Doris Duke Theater at the Honolulu Museum of Art will be hosting a tattoo film festival from June 23 to July 6. In addition to a wide array of documentaries and feature films, the festival also includes two lectures on Polynesian tattooing by Tricia Allen. For more information, click here. 

As an aside, for those with an interest in historic tattooing images, the Hawaiian & Pacific Collections are in the process of completing an online image collection that draws from our rare book holdings -- included are several images of tattoos from throughout Oceania. The image at right is one example; to view others, click here.
