Add to GoodRe. The Tattooed Lady.
Living in a time when it was scandalous even to show a bit of ankle, a small of courageous women covered their bodies in tattoos and traveled the country, performing nearly nude on carnival stages. These gutsy women spun amazing stories for captivated audiences about abductions and forced tattooing at the hands of savages, but little has been shared of their real lives. Though they spawned a cultural movement—almost a quarter of Americans now have tattoos—these women have largely faded into history.
The Tattooed Lady uncovers the true stories behind these women, bringing them out of the sideshow realm and into their working class realities. Combining thorough research with more than a hundred historical photos, this updated second edition explores tattoo origins, women's history, circus lore, and includes even more personal and professional details from modern tattooed ladies.
A fascinating read, The Tattooed Lady pays tribute to a group of unique and amazing women whose legacy lives on. Taylor Trade Publishing.
