Bodies of Subversion: A Secret History of Women & Tattoo

Bodies of Subversion: A Secret History of Women & Tattoo Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 wanted to sever their identification with "natural" beauty and purity, to the healing powers that tattoo's color and symbolism can provide for a mastectomy survivor.
