My Story, My Tattoo

Archive Exhibits

February 06 to April 23, 2019

A travelling exhibition from the Wellington County Museum and Archives 

My Story, My Tattoo reveals that tattoos are living images that reveal important stories about residents, communities and the tattoo phenomenon. Participants in the travelling exhibit represent every walk of life – everyone from a cancer survivor to teachers and their students, a firefighter and a farmer. 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.
