Heavily Tattooed Men and Women

Spider Webb

This classic book will turn heads turn. Images of over a hundred heavily tattooed people from the early decades of the 20th century show proud carnival and circus performers, sailors, entertainers, and who knows, the girl next door? The Introduction is by Marcia Tucker, Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the author provided material for the 1999 New York Natural History Museum’s Body Art exhibition that confirmed tattoos as just one type of body decoration found worldwide. Here is an excellent opportunity for today’s tattoo enthusiasts to see how the earlier generations did it.
