Staircase mini-exhibition presents sailor tattoos.


In the spring of 2020 Rauma Maritime Museum received a significant donation of photographs depicting Finnish seamens sailor tattoos. The photographs were donated by Jari Ruotsalainen, PhD, who wrote his dissertation on Finnish sailors tattoos. He continued his research on the subject by photographing and collecting over forty images of different sailor tattoos from Finnish seamen all over the country . The staircase mini-exhibition displays pictures from the donation by Ruotsalainen and also older images from the collections of Rauma Maritime Museum.
