Blast From the Past: Reader Submitted Tattoo Gallery

We challenged Dirt Rag readers show us their ink. The response was impressive. Check out the rad tattoos from the photo spread that we ran in Issue #139.

Editor’s note: In Issue #137, Jonathan Logan of Rochester, New York, wrote in and asked if we could publish a section of reader’s tattoos. We challenged our readers show us the ink. The response was impressive, and in Dirt Rag Issue #139 we ran a two-page spread that included the reader-submitted photos proudly displayed below.
