Tattoo enthusiasts must visit Triangle Tattoo & Museum in Fort Bragg on the Mendocino County coast of California. Madame Chinchilla & Mr. G are tattoo artists, industry historians, and life partners. They founded this place in 1986. Both had trained under Bert Rodriguez, a Mexican-American tattoo artist who started a Santa Rosa studio in 1978 and the Tattoos & Blues convention in 1992, one of the longest-running tattoo conventions in the world. And Madame Chinchilla is a renowned author whose works include “Stewed, Screwed & Tattooed,” “Electric Tattooing by Women,” “Electric Tattooing by Men,” and “Captain Don Leslie–Sword Swallower–Circus Sideshow Attraction.” Chinchilla’s Captain Don Leslie contains never-before-seen photos (such as the last portrait of Don Leslie before he died in 2007). Chinchilla & Mr. G were good friends with Don Leslie & Lyle Tuttle, who generously donated Captain Don Leslie memorabilia. Lyle Tuttle has left a legacy on their walls. There are many treasures, from the original Tattooed Body shirt of 1974 to the machines he created. It is a small museum with many interesting artifacts, and you could spend a whole week there. The museum has some areas where photography is prohibited due to security concerns. It is also divided by Maoris, Native American tribes and sailors, military personnel, motorcyclists, and motorcycle clubs.
