    A Travelling Exhibit from the Wellington County Museum and Archives.

    Running Saturday, January 20, 2024 to Sunday, May 5, 2024

    Tattoos are living images that reveal important stories about our residents, our community and the tattoo phenomenon. My Story, My Tattoo, features 32 photographs and stories of people and their amazing tattoos. 

    Participants represent every walk of life - everyone from a cancer survivor to teachers and their students, a firefighter and a farmer. The participants range in age from 26 to 89 years and live throughout Wellington County. 

    All the individuals were open and honest, and their stories and personalities are represented through this series of thought-provoking and colourful images. Chris Piccinetti, a Guelph photographer and graphic designer for the County of Wellington, photographed these inspiring images.
