My Story, My Tattoo
A Travelling Exhibit from the Wellington County Museum and Archives.
Cancelled due to Covid closure - will be back in the future
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 live - everyone from a cancer survivor to teachers and their students, a firefigher and a farmer.
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 grapic designer for the County of Wellington, photographed these inspiring images.
