KEEPERS & TATTOOS II: "Chimp Kona was a little brother to me, our relationship was so special and losing him was absolutely devastating. I knew I wanted him with me, but I could never find a tattoo design that felt right. A year after he passed away, I came across a 1931 copy of 'The Mentality of Apes,' the book that Dr. Jane Goodall took into the field with her in 1960. One of the first pages had a simple sketch of a chimp and I immediately knew that was the right design. I had a wonderful artist who was able to bring Kona into a piece of history that was carried by my hero, to one of the most pivotal study sites in the history of conservation. Now I get to carry my memories of him with me every day, and my inspiration for the protection of this species." ~ William B.

Palm Beach Zoo this is so cool!!!!

Dallas Zoo continues to get my support and vote for best zoo. I love this. And the new baby gorilla is just splendid.

Blair

Ok Son... I give.❤️

We want to see the coral reef tattoo on his other arm!

Love this

I love what the Dallas Zoo is doing. I’ve been waiting most of my life for tattoos to become more mainstream and for those of us who wear them proudly to not be judged.

This is awesome! We miss Kona, too. I loved sitting and watching him.

Awwwww! Will!

Kona was one of my favorite animals at the zoo. RIP

My family misses him so much as well!

William Bookwalter you’re a star!

Another great keeper - another great story!

Even though I am no longer on “staff” I am still proud to call dallas zoo home. Love keepers and the work they do! Love this!

Victoria Brackett

I love this!!!!

Be with you always. That’s clever !!!

Love this William Bookwalter! Touching story and great ink. Happy zookeeper week!

THATS MY BEST HECKING FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD 😃😃

Victoria Burns

He was there one time when my family and I were listening to a keeper talk and I remember telling my mom how much I liked his tattoos... this is so cool!!

KEEPERS & TATTOOS I: "This mandrill skull represents so much. First, it's a bond between my dad and I - we've always been into skulls. They're beautiful, organic structures that make up our entire being. And mandrills were the first animal I worked with at the Dallas Zoo; they made me feel at home. Mandrills have super-ornate skulls that are unique to their species. The male's skull gets larger and more ornate as they become dominant. I was able to find my groove as a zookeeper with these monkeys. And my personality is totally mandrill - Obi is my spirit animal." ~ Annie B.

Shut the front door, great idea Dallas Zoo!! Us keepers love our animal tattoos

Shervin Hess

Love it! The animals zoo keepers work with leave lasting impressions on their hearts and often times we keepers honor that invisible mark with very visible reminders!!! I love that Dallas is willing to showcase this!!

I LOVE THIS! Proud of the zoo for highlighting both your keepers and the art they wear <3

Annie- that is AMAZING! I too worked with mandrills early in my career (including a male born at Dallas)! ❤ I simply couldn't love it more. Happy NZKW!

Susan Findley

I love the fact that you all are highlighting zookeeper tattoos. We often wear them as badges of honor, fond remembrances, and as dedication. It is great that you all are so open to sharing, as so many zoos require tattoos to be covered up.

Amy Robinson check this out😀! Thank you Dallas Zoo for highlighting this special way that keepers show their passion!

Kylee Meeker. Are they featuring any of your tats?

Nice guns too!

San Diego Zoo, wouldn’t this be a great idea??? We have so many keepers with beautiful tattoos in honor of our very own animals! ❤️❤️

Fellow keeper here! My crow is almost finished 🙂

Jamie McTyre

Danny Buccelli my spirit animal is your tattoos of our collection

Robin Abrams

Aimee Bernal I like this idea 😃

I love this tattoo. And as I said on Instagram, her arms are impressive! Dallas Zoo has a great conservation program. And I'm loving that they're featuring their keepers and their body art.

like that this zoo diesnt make keepers cover them up.

MOMMA JEAN'S BBQ in Lampasas, which opened a little more than a year ago, is named after gregarious pitmaster Johnny Walker’s 89-year-old mother, who taught him how to cook. The love and joy Walker puts into his work shines through not just in the food he creates—all the classics, made using family recipes—but also through his interaction with customers. We stopped by to chat with Walker about his style and what makes for true Texas barbecue. Presented by YETI. ... See MoreSee Less
