Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection began with the acquisition of a set of 71 slides (the photographer is unknown) that suggest a possible ethnocentric study on gang life in San Gabriel Valley, California. Included in the slides are images of tattoos and tattooing, as well as images of picnics, confrontations with police, graffiti, and group shots. Also included in the collection is an article from the San Diego Union-Tribune on the meaning of tattoos and tattooing.
