The RVA Japanese Tattoo Scavenger Hunt

May 18 - May 28, 2015


Japanese tattoos traditions inspire Strength. Courage. Perseverance.
Things you see in RVA every day.

With that in mind, we’re giving Richmond its very first Japanese tattoo – one piece at a time.

Every couple of days, we’ll put a new piece of the tattoo around Richmond, in a place that represents that tattoo’s meaning.
And we want you to find them. (And win some very cool prizes in the process.)

With every piece, we’ll post a clue on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter about where you can find that piece.
(With a little break in the contest for Memorial Day weekend.)

Here’s what you need to do.

1. Check the clue.
2. Find the piece.
3. Take a picture of yourself with it.
4. Post it to Instagram with #ttthunt.
5. Once you’ve found (and taken pictures of yourself with) all six pieces, post the last picture with #tttfound.

Once we’ve released all six clues, we’ll put the tattoo on one of RVA’s buildings as a mural—giving it to the city as a lasting gift. And yes, we’ll have a big party at Triple Crossing Brewing on Saturday, May 30 to go with it.

We’ll give each of the first 50 people who complete the scavenger hunt a free ticket to the exhibition. And we’ll put you in the drawing for one of two grand prizes:

1.) A free year-long membership at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, or
2.) Free drinks and a ride home from our Mural Release Party at Triple Crossing Brewing on May 30.
