‘My Story, My Tattoo’ Exhibit Returns to Wellington County Museum and Archives

ABOYNE – Wellington County Museum and Archives (WCMA) is happy to announce the return of their My Story, My Tattoo exhibit for an encore presentation.  

My Story, My Tattoo is an exploration of the lives, tales, and tattoos of 30 Wellington County residents. 

Taking a journey throughout Ontario during the last seven years, this exhibit initially opened at WCMA in 2016 and has since travelled to museums as far west as Fort Frances, north as Thunder Bay, east as Brockville and south as Woodstock, making an impression on hundreds of museum guests every day. 

The exhibit reveals tattoos as dwelling pictures that reveal vital tales about residents, communities, and the tattoo phenomenon. 

Contributors are from many various walks of life – from most cancers survivor to fireside fighter, from instructor to farmer.  

“We’re very grateful to the people who took half for his or her open, trustworthy, beneficiant contributions which make up the My Story, My Tattoo exhibit,” stated WCMA assistant curator Amy Dunlop. 

“Participant tales and personalities shine by on this collection of thought-provoking and vibrant pictures.” 

Exhibit images have been taken by Chris Piccinetti, a Guelph photographer, and Wellington County graphic designer. 

My Story, My Tattoo shall be open to the general public from Could 27 till December 2023. 

The WCMA is open weekdays from 9:30am to 4:30pm, and weekends from 11am to 4pm. Admission is by donation.
