Tattoo News - August 2004
FESTIVAL OF PACIFIC ARTS, PALAU
As you might know I just returned from the Festival of Pacific Arts on Koror, Palau. Sorry I'm too exhausted & overworked right now to provide a summary, but I promise to write one for the next newsletter. In the meantime, I'm including a selection of photos by Hilary Scothorn.
I'll be giving a slide talk, a Tattoo Tour of Polynesia, on Sat August 29th at 11:00 am at the Hawai'i State Library, Hawai'i and Pacific Section, 478 S. King Street in Honolulu. Please come!
