Strange Maine

Founded 2005! Freaks. Weirdos. Unmapped roads. Whispering rocks. Deadening fog. Ghost pirates. Lonely islands. THINGS in the WOODS. Home of Stephen King & Glenn Chadbourne. A place where the 4 seasons really know how to live. Maine: the way life should be! This site is a nexus for conversation about Maine's unique strangeness, people who love it, people who have experienced it, & people who are intrigued by it. History, mysteries, legends, current events, cryptozoology, & more.

Maine tattoos on the map

Julia is one of our longtime readers, and was kind enough to share photos of her two Maine-related tattoos with us! "I do in fact have plans for more," she adds. We hope she keeps us updated. Here they are:

Julia's map of the Portland peninsula (for comparison, see the historic map to the right):
...and her state map, which is handy for drawing out roadtrip plans (demonstrated in the righthand photo). Nifty!!!
Thanks Julia! Anyone else out there with Maine tattoos is welcome to chime in.

Awesome. Look how much the map of Portland has changed in the last 100 years - and imagine how different it's going to be in another half-century, when Julia's regaling her grandkids with stories.
