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
San Diego Union-Tribune on the meaning of tattoos and tattooing.
