Behind every tattoo is a story of remembrance, mateship, identity and healing.
Tattoos are a conversation starter. Many members and veterans of the Australian Defence Forces have tattoos.
While their reasons for getting tattooed are as varied as the people themselves, self expression and belonging play a part.
They also share a common purpose in getting inked: to remember.
Hear the stories behind the tattoos in the Ink in the Lines exhibition; showcasing Australia’s modern veterans and their families, who through their tattoos commemorate the people, events and experiences which shaped their lives.
