Modern Western tattoo art was influenced by the imagery and culture of life at sea; but what happens when tattooers live amidst the rugged flora and fauna of the driest desert in North America? Hot, Dry & Inked is an exhibit of tattoo art and objects, created by Las Vegas tattooers exploring how the Mojave Desert influences their art on living and non-living canvases alike.
Located in the Big Springs Gallery inside the Origen Museum, the exhibit will be open daily during regular business hours through January 10, 2016. This exhibit is free for members or with paid general admission.
