View Tribute Ink, a touring exhibition by the Royal British Legion.
Tattoos are a significant and permanent act of Remembrance in the British Armed Forces. Inked onto the skin, they commemorate friends who have served, illustrate personal sacrifices and mark the lasting bonds formed between men and women who live, train and fight together.
Military tattoos are full of meaning and symbolism, telling stories of personal sacrifice, Remembrance and belonging. These symbols have a range of origins; some are ancient while others are new; many are timeless whereas others are specific to a generation. By deciphering the tattoos of those who serve, you will uncover personal stories of Remembrance that are as moving as they are visually beautiful.
York Army Museum has a platform stairlift to enable access. Free accessible parking is located opposite the Museum.
