It seems like July 1 will take forever to get here.

When Gov. Janet Mills issued her timeline for reopening Maine’s economy last week, tattoo parlors were not allowed to open until July 1. As you can imagine, some people were not happy with this decision, but if we can all hang in there just a little bit longer, we can go back to enjoying the things that each and every one of us are so desperately missing right now.

Way back in the fall of 2017, we asked Z-107.3 listeners on Facebook who the best Bangor area tattoo artist was, and we got a huge response from people who wanted to show off their own ink! So let's take a look back, and who knows, maybe one of these photos will inspire your next work of body art.
