The Tattoo – A Pictorial History

Leave a Comment

Yesterday, while in the library I came across this rather incredible book. Not only are the photographs amazing but the descriptions with each image are out of this world! Although the book reads as being utterly sensational it still holds some important historical references to tattooing and rare images.

(Sorry for the bad quality photos)

    These photos of Kitty Gordon in her later days ( show no sign of a bird of paradise tattoo, also no mention on her wikipedia page. Elaborate hoax?

    I think these images are really cool. Who would have thought that non-traditional tribe members would get tattoos on their face in the 20th century. I’m going to have to look this book up now!!
