Brampton - Whether it was a tribute, a rite of passage, or a mistake, behind every tattoo there is a story – what’s yours? If you or someone you know has a tattoo, the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) wants to hear from you. From July 2 to Sept. 13, tattoo enthusiasts in and around the Peel community can submit a photo of their tattoo or henna and share its story at pama.peelregion.ca/tattoos.

Submissions may be featured in PAMA’s new photography exhibition Inked: Tattoos and the Stories They Tell, which explores the individuality of tattoos and asks the question – why do we ink?

PAMA will also have a special tent set up at the 14th annual Classic Cars and Legendary Stars event in Brampton on Friday, July 19 from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday, July 20 from 12-6 p.m. Visitors to the PAMA tent can have their tattoo professionally photographed and share their story.

“Tattoos have a fascinating history and have been worn in every culture,” said Marty Brent, Supervisor, Museum and Archive Services, PAMA. “They have evolved in the last few decades from a statement of rebellion to self expression, which is something that we want to explore at PAMA.”

In addition to crowd sourced tattoos from the community, the exhibition will feature information on the history and culture of tattoos throughout the ages. Inked: Tattoos and the Stories They Tell runs at PAMA from Nov. 16, 2013 to March 30, 2014.
