The Tattooed Lady: A History provides the first book to gather the

true stories behind women who largely appeared in sideshows and

encouraged a cultural tattoo movement across America. Hundreds of

historical photos blend with a social history exploring tattoo origins,

women’s labor history and circus lives, and how their interest in

body art helped foster the roots of a movement. The black and white and

color vintage illustrations, poster art, and photos make for a winner

for all kinds of collections; from social history to general lending

libraries.
