Description

A fascinating excursion into a thriving subculture, this book explores the feminist significance of tattoos, noting that women’s involvement with tattoo accelerated in both the suffragist ’20s and the feminist ’70s. Author Margot Mifflin uncovers the subversive relationship between women and tattoo, from society ladies who want to sever their identification with “natural” beauty, to the healing powers that tattoo’s color and symbolism can provide for a mastectomy survivor. 100 photos, some in color.
