    Everybody has the right to present themselves,
    to dress and decorate their bodies and accessorize as they like.
  • 56 year-old Ronald Koch (a.k.a. Johnny Bones) in Tombstone, Arizona,
    plays his ebony bones for the tourists everyday for any gratuity,
    sometimes for only a smile or the click of a camera in the background.

    Ronald Koch describes himself
    “Tombstone’s Master of Frivolous Merriment”
    “A gardener of smiles”
