CIMM Presents Tattooed & Tenacious: Inked Women in California History. Opens to the Public Sunday, September 2, 2018; 10:00am – 4:00pm at 3900 Bluefin Circle, Oxnard 93035. Explore the rich and surprising history of women and tattoos in California at CIMM’s newest exhibit.
While many may think of tattoos as a recent trend, inked women have a long history in California. From the working-class Tattooed Ladies who performed in circus sideshows to the upper-class inked women who helped popularize the tattoo craze; visitors will discover the largely unknown history of women and tattoos through photographs, personal histories, and artifacts. “We are so excited to share the remarkable stories of these women and connect them with tattooing today”, said Heather Behrens, Curator, and Collections Manager at CIMM.
Tattooed & Tenacious: Inked Women in California History will be open until Sunday, December 30, 2018.
