Krutak will present Tattooing in the Ancient World on September 19 at 7 p.m. in the Center for Faith and Life Recital Hall at Luther College. During the presentation, he will share his ongoing journey to understand how ancient and more contemporary tattoos “make” the people who wear them.

Following the talk, we'll continue the conversation with Lars at an after party and book signing in the Vesterheim exhibit gallery. There will be light snacks and a cash bar at the museum.
