My Tattoo My Story

February 14th 2017 until April 25th 2017

A Travelling Exhibit from the Wellington County Museum and Archives

Tattoos are living images that reveal important stories. My Story, My Tattoo features 32 photographs and stories of people and their amazing tattoos. The exhibit includes four audio stations (with eight audio interviews), six videos and 30 text panels.

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 of 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.
