Tattoo Stories is a project that engages and provides the opportunity for youth/young adults to share personal stories in relation to their tattoos. The participants involved in this project work with a professional photographer to capture intimate photos of their tattoos. Afterward, each participant is interviewed by our Creative Director, to get “real” and share stories about resilience, self-care, life purpose and the benefits of the arts.
Photos and interviews derived from the Tattoo Stories Project are given to participants, as well shared with the public through different mediums to start a conversation about mental health and wellness (i.e. blog, magazine, social media, Tattoo Stories Exhibit).
Tattoo Stories Exhibit takes place during Mental Illness Awareness.
