LONG PLAYING: TATTOO ART Tattoo Archive; 618 W. 4th St., Winston-Salem; 336.722.4422; www.tattooarchive.com; noon.; FREE

Just a few years ago, you could walk into a record store and many of the albums would’ve been displayed on walls very similar to the way that paintings are displayed in galleries. Bands would even commission established artists to create artwork for their albums that would be at home in most “galleries.” This exhibit showcases a few of the classic album covers from the 1940s to the 1980s containing tattooing or body painting.
