When the idea of style comes to mind, most people solely think of clothing. In reality, style can be much broader, including things like piercings and tattoos. Senior, Austin Orth chooses to express himself through permanent art on his body.
“I wanted to get a tattoo for a long time and when I finally turned 18 I just went to a shop down the street and got it,” Orth said.
Although some parents would be opposed to their high school senior getting a tattoo, Orth said that his parents were okay with his decision.
“My parents have tattoos so they thought it was cool,” Orth said.
Other than his tattoo, Orth prioritizes individuality when it comes to his clothing.
“The way I express myself is just being me, and my style is statement that says I’m me and I’m me for a reason,” Orth said.
Orth, a horror movie fan, modeled his first tattoo after Michael Myers from “Halloween.”
“The meaning is that the knife is a mirror and when you look at yourself sometimes it’s scary,” Orth said.
Orth’s fascination with horror films doesn’t stop there. The next tattoo he has planned incorporates multiple different movies within it.
“I plan on getting some more,” Orth said. “The next one is going to be Freddy [Krueger], Jason [from Friday the 13th], and Michael [Myers] with the hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.”
