Rocky Mountain Tattoos

DWP_0184 copy
Tattoos and roller derby go hand in hand. Sure, there are plenty of derby people who don’t have any tattoos, but unlike in the general populace (where only about 20% of Americans have ink), the tattoo-free roller derby crowd is likely in the minority when they take to the track. And so it is that I decided to embark on this project: Rocky Mountain Tattoos.

I’ve been photographing skaters both on and off the track since 2010. As of May of 2014, I’ve decided to give my efforts a bit of direction as I endeavor to photograph the wide variety of artwork found on the skin of the amazing and diverse group of roller derby athletes that I’m fortunate enough to call my friends. I’ll be photographing any and all women of the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls who care to participate. The fruits of our labor will be shared here as we go along, so please check in often!

Without further ado, I give you Rocky Mountain Tattoos
