Show off your Ink!
The Coos History Museum is seeking participants for their upcoming exhibit “Vet Ink: Military-Inspired Tattoos,” opening later this year. The museum will be featuring military-inspired tattoos and the stories behind them (when, where, why) as the focus of this unique and personal military exhibit.
Retired military and active duty service men and women from all five branches of the military are encouraged to participate.
Individuals must currently reside on the South Coast of Oregon and selected candidates must be available to be photographed and
interviewed between June 21 through June 29, 2018.
Selected participants, their tattoos, and their stories will be featured in the “Vet Ink: Military-Inspired Tattoos” exhibit on the mezzanine gallery of the museum. Those
entries not chosen for the exhibit will have the opportunity to be featured on the museum website.
To be considered, participants must submit a completed 2-page form, along with a photograph(s) of their tattoo. Submission deadline is May 31, 2018.
