About the Tattoo Storyhunters

The souls of men and women have chosen this season in history to speak in a unique and special way.  The soul is writing its secrets on the live canvas of the human skin with permanent ink, using tattoos.  Why?

Allan Dayhoff began asking this question and his research lead him to publish a book in 2016 called “God and Tattoos: Why Are People Writing on Themselves?”  That research has grown and a second edition of the book was published in 2018 under a new title, “Tattoos: Telling the Secrets of the Soul.”

This new edition of the book made its debut when Dayhoff took a team of researchers to the 2018 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.  This team, known as The Tattoo Storyhunters, interviewed hundreds of bikers and came away with stories ranging from the greatest joys to the most heart-wrenching tragedies.

Today, this team of researchers continues to grow.  We continue to do tattoo discovery events across the country.  This website is a forum for team members to share the findings and discoveries of their research.  We’ll also let you know where the team will be going next.

In reading these articles and interviews and watching our videos, you may want to join the team and begin your own journey of research and discovery.  If so, contact us and we’ll help you get started  !
