Salty, Stained Skin: Stories of Sailors Tattoos on October 10

by Dave on September 28, 2010

For centuries, tattooing and sailing have gone hand and hand; most people even recognize classic nautical tattoos, but what do they mean? Why do some sailors have an anchor and others have swallows? Come and discover the symbolism and history of classic and modern maritime tattooing at the Indian River Life-Saving Station on October 10 at 1:00 pm.

The fee for this presentation is $4 per person; pre-registration is not required but seating is limited. Participants will meet at the Indian River Life-Saving Station in Delaware Seashore State Park, 1.5 miles north of the Indian River Inlet. For more information on this or other programs, please call the Indian River Life-Saving Station Museum at 302-227-6991.
