My dumb tattoos 

A Coast photographer bares all

I have three tattoos, all done between the ages of 16 and 18 and each one is kind of bad in its own right.

Tattoo #1: Lacoste alligator logo on my back left shoulder, when I was 16 at Red Dragon Tattoo in Oromocto, NB, two hours before my father was remarried. He dropped me off on the way to rehearsal, I got the tat and removed the bloody gauze covering it in the bathroom of the reception hall.

Tattoo #2: Rainbow tribal tattoo, much like a “tramp stamp” in the middle of my shoulder blades at the age of 17 at Epidart Tattoos and Piercing in Moncton, NB.

Tattoo #3: Rainbow 45 record spinner, on my left pec, kind of above my heart at the age of 18 at Epidart. While I like this one the most because of my love of music and vinyl records (I bought a 45-record jukebox in my late 20s), I still wish it wasn’t rainbow coloured. I blame my love of Phish at the time.
