  • Live Tattooing at the Asian Art Museum

    Jul 13

    Free with museum general admission

    1—4 PM

    Guest tattoo artists get out their needles to demonstrate their skills. Spend the afternoon watching tattoo virtuosi, Taki Kitamura, Horitomo, Mary Joy Scott and Colin Stevens as they inscribe original designs — inspired by works in the museum’s collection — on live models using electric and hand-engraving techniques.

    Visitors will delight in sampling Kombucha from House Kombucha, and those over 21 may sample Dr. Hops Kombucha Beer, while supplies last.
