Love - Anton Anya - St. Petersburg 1893-1913
This tattoo was applied in a house of correction in St. Petersburg. It is from an old thief born in St. Petersburg to a working class family. His nickname was ‘Happy Anton’ [Lucky Anton]. The tattoo was applied in 1913 when Anton turned twenty and fell in love with Anya, who was killed in 1919 in Gatchina. He served his first sentence of one year for stealing food, and later served time building the White Sea Canal in both the Urals and Kolyma. He was convicted six times for stealing property.
