Loud, Naked, & In Three Colors: The
History Of Tattooing In Boston
Join us at the Senior Center on Thursday, September 29 at 1:00 pm as Karla Rosenstein, Site Manager of the Eustis Estate through Historic New England, explores an art form that was once banned in Boston, but today is seen as a creative mode of self‐expression. Loud, Naked, & in Three Colors: the History of Tattooing in Boston, currently on view at the Eustis Estate, explores this phenomenon through a stunning selection of flash art, photography, and advertisements that paint a rich picture of this unique period in the history of tattooing. The exhibition traces the popularization of tattooing in Boston through the stories and memorabilia of the city’s leading tattoo pioneers. The exhibition also features the work of Frank Howard and the Liberty family who dominated Boston’s tattoo scene from their shops in Scollay Square. Their stories reveal the complex and nonconformist tattoo culture and the people, businesses, and communities surrounding the tattoo trade. Karla will also share information about the Eustis Estate Museum, a marvel of the Aesthetic Movement.
