Michael Bell knuckle tattoos

Tribute Ink is moving to Cardiff Castle in the on 24 September - 11 November.

Tattoos play a key role within the Armed Forces. Inked onto the skin of servicemen and women, they are a personal act of Remembrance, acting as a permanent reminder of the wearer's experiences, triumphs, and losses.

RBL and NMA have been working together closely with the British Army, RAF, and Royal Navy to uncover how tattooing remains an emotional and important act of remembrance in the Armed Forces today.

York Army Museum will be hosting the Tribute Ink exhibition in May to tell the stories behind the tattoo art by reliving the memories told by members of the Armed Forces.

Tickets for the exhibition are available from the York Army Museum.
