Their newest book is a biography on the life and times of the legendary Capt. Don Leslie who was one of the last of the old-time "Circus Tattooed Men" and a revered "Swordswallower".

The museum was very interesting. It had photos from around the world and from different eras about tribal tattoos, prisoner tattoos, decorative tattoos, circus tattoos, military tattoos etc. They also had a display of various tattooing implements. I was there with my 9 year old son and after a few minutes a person politely asked us to leave because they didn't allow children in the museum at that time. I don't know why because they advertize children are welcome. The museum is free. It's worth a look if you are walking around downtown.
