This mural, located on the building housing the restaurant Bluebeard and Amelia’s Bakery, features a portrait of country music star Dolly Parton sporting prison-style tattoos referring to two of her most iconic works: the 1980 movie and song 9 to 5 and the 1973 song Jolene. There is also a teardrop tattoo under her right eye; this tattoo can have many meanings including mourning loss, but is frequently seen on prison inmates; the artist may have included it to make Parton look tough.
