From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Tattoo Teen Newspaper was ateen-written newspaper based in Connecticut.[1][2] It was in print from 1994-2006 and in 1996 it went online until it ceased publication in November 2015.[3] The paper, which published work produced by the nonprofit Youth Journalism International, was founded in 1994 by Jackie and Steve Majerus-Collins, then writers for The Bristol Press. The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding said, "The Tattoo has grown into a widely respected online teen newspaper with writers from around the world. The site is filled with articles on every topic of interest to teenagers. A great window into the adolescent world and worldview."[4] The Hartford Courant declared that "if you want to see into the minds of today's bright and funny young thinkers, spend some time with this Bristol-based publication. You can get a teen's -eye view of world politics, teen pregnancy, teen suicide, local events and sex." Samantha Perez, a writer for The Tattoo, has received awards for her Hurricane Katrina journals in 2005 and 2006. [5] Its writers have also won 7 first-place awards from the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists since 1998; 34 National Gold Key awards from the National Newspaper Association and the Quill and Scroll Society since 1997; 55 Scholastic Press Forum awards since 1999; and the Suburban Newspapers Association's award for Best Young People's Coverage in both 2002 and 2005, as well as its feature writing award in 2007; along with a Distinguished Service Award from the Connecticut Committee for Youth Suicide Prevention in 1997.
