The Watering Hole: TatZOO at Denver Zoo


I have been invited as a guest artist/photographer to this fun event at Denver Zoo. I’ll be there to photograph willing participants with plant and animal tattoos who want their body art to be featured in a Wander + Wonder World Map. In preparation for the event, I created this animal tattoo map to be used as an example of what the final artwork might look like.

If you or a friend have tattoos that you want featured in my artwork, come to the event… or even if you don’t, come have a good time!


For centuries, humans have expressed their connections to wildlife through tattoos and body art. At this fall’s Watering Hole, tatZOO, we’ll explore these bonds and take a deeper look at various animal markings that act as unique adaptations for survival in the wild.

Join us for intimate and informative chats with Denver Zoo animal keepers and local tattoo artists—PLUS cocktails and casual eats! Your ticket price includes one complimentary cocktail. What are you waiting for? INK IT!
