Summary

Summary

In this provocative work, full of intriguing female characters from tattoo history, Margot Mifflin makes a persausive case for the tattooed women as an emblem of female self expression. Illustrated with over 200 photographs, this is the seminal and first book of its type to discuss and portray women and tattoos, which have traditionally been a male preserve.
