Body Art NightLife
For thousands of years, humans have been painting, tattooing, piercing, grooming, and sculpting their bodies. Take a closer look at how and why on the eve of San Francisco’s Body Art Expo. Tattoo artists from Moth and Dagger, Mom’s Body Shop, Let It Bleed and others will be on-hand for consultations. Adorn yourself at an airbrush tattoo or henna station, or create a new custom accessory at jewelry-making workshops by Accessorize with Toys and Raissa Bump Jewelry. See Native American jewelry and pottery from the Academy’s anthropology collection in the Evolving Traditions exhibit gallery. Study up on the history of male grooming and facial hair styles with renowned barber Shorty Maniace. And learn about the history of navigation through the South Pacific (home of the Tahitian word “tattau,” root of “tattoo”) in the planetarium. Music by Dr. Sleep.
Tickets are $12 ($10 for Academy members).
