Amid display cases showcasing lifelike silicone limbs and torsos tattooed by some of the industry's preeminent artists, actual sentient tattooed people mingled and admired the Natural History Museum's new “Tattoo: An Exhibition” at the opening party on Friday, Nov. 17. Inside the exhibit's pop-up tattoo parlor, Eric Jones of Port City Tattoo worked on a client's forearm piece as partiers looked on. Elsewhere, guests enjoyed a DJ and eats from local food trucks.
