Some of you survived your teenage years without too much drama, but for most of us it meant going through some rebellious phases, including, but not limited to emo kid, indie, punk, gangster etc.
We were pretty serious about it back then, trying to convince our parents that “it’s not just a phase, this is who I am”. Good thing it’s all in the past now. We’re all grown up and serious, just as our parents wished we would become one day.
Punks Tina Tarr and her partner Dog were pictured near the Cathedral in Peterborough when Tina was 18. The couple left the city in the 1990s and went travelling. They have twins, but are no longer together. Tina now lives in Dorset and makes willow products and hosts weaving workshops. Dog does hedge laying and gardening and lives in South West Wales. “I remember the photo being taken, it was a brilliant time. I had various styles of punk hair for quite a few years,” said Tina. Dog added: “They were good times, I still had hair then”.
