5.0 von 5 Sternen An important history of a secret enthusiasm, 17. März 1999
Margot Mifflin's book is an amazingly well-documented and thoroughly acurate telling of the secret history of tattooed women and women tattoo artists in America. I was interviewed extensively for this subject, and throughout the year she was gathering material I watched as Mifflin's knowledge and understanding of her subject matter grew.
Contrary to another UNSIGNED review posted here, I believe the women quoted are proud to have been included and I have not heard ONE of my peers complain about it.
Many people feel that tattooing has experienced a huge upsurgence of popularity in the last decade, but until this book most will not have had the perspective to realise just how common it was for your Grandma to have slipped off to get a wicked little something, possibly a secret only she and her husband shared. It is women's willingness to boldly display their tattoos, NOT their enthuisiasm for body art, that has changed.
Margot Mifflin brought her experience as an investigator with a feminist perspective to the organization of a vast wealth of material, helped by many of the important members of the tattoo community. We knew that this was unlikely to be a book one of us would write, and it most definately needed to be written.
From the circus ladies who chose to exhibit themselves as art to the educated graphic artists of today who choose tattooing as their art medium, the women of ink are grateful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Best Books I've Ever Read!, 29. August 1998
This book was fascinating : it documented women and tattooing for 100 years. It was an illistrated guide to the signifigance of tattoos to women and society, how and when tattooing came into style and why. It was one of the best books I have ever read! If you are a strong woman, love tattoos, or both, you will definately like this book!

I believe the women quoted are proud to have been included and I have not heard ONE of my peers complain about the book, either for attitude expressed or factually.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Seldom Told History, 24. Februar 2000
For some reason, the art and culture surrounding tattoo is still considered a male interest. Seeing as most of my friends interested in and displaying tattoos are female, this stigma obviously must change. Margot's book tells amazing stories and documents a "secret" North American history that deserves more exposure. Having the pleasure to meet Margot and host a Q&A with her in Toronto, I can say that she is one of the most intriguing and down to earth people around. Her honest curiosity on the subject gave her research a simple, refreshing perspective that shows through in the book. Anyone curious in tattoo, male or female, and North American history of pop culture needs this book!
