It was great to meet Madame Chinchilla. The feeling of the surroundings were calming & interesting.She was very warm & welcoming & asked everyone to sign into their guest book. She struck me as a sweet soul.

“A different experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

Though my husband and I both have tattoos this museum was not quite up our alley. It had tons of information and was tasteful in presentation you felt a little overwhelmed by the amount of photographs and information.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013 via mobile

The museum was very interesting, I was definitely impressed. Worth a stop in to browse around. Everyone is really friendly and welcoming. The museum had all sorts of different tattoo items-- different machines and huge collection of tattoos. One of the rooms had a wall dedicated to women with tattoos.

The Triangle Tattoo and Museum is a must even if you don't want a tattoo! The owner was awesome and she has some wonderful old school tattoo flash and equipment.

“Something to kill time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

AThe pictures were pretty interesting to see but the hallways were extremely cramped so no chance of two people being in the same spot more than once. The people working there weren't very friendly so that was a little put off.
