Tattoos can be viewed as a form of artwork and creative individualism, or as a disgraceful part of ‘yob’ culture, but love them or hate, they’re here to stay.
Maritime Museum in Falmouth is hosting the largest gathering of original tattoo paraphernalia ever seen in the UK. You’ll find authentic artwork, photographs and historical artefacts. Learn about the history and cultural influences behind the practice and the designs.
The museum has also commissioned the ‘100 hands project’, where one hundred silicone arms will all be tattooed with an original design, providing a ground-breaking artistic legacy for future generations.
The exhibition runs from 17th March 2017 – 7th January 2018.
March 17 (Friday) 10:00 am - January 7 (Sunday) 5:00 pm
While finishing the final few bits of your Christmas shopping, why not take a relaxing break from the last-minute frenzy, and join the 100-year-old Christmas Eve tradition of the Harmony Choir who wend their way through Falmouth town, singing traditional Christmas carols. The choir leaves the Watersports Centre at 10:30 am, stopping off to sing at Church Corner, Church Street car park and Market Street, before arriving at the Moor at around 1pm for a grand finale.
