Today while reading an International Women's Day fluff piece about interesting historical women, I saw a picture of Maud Wagner, the first known female tattoo artist in the U.S. I couldn't find a whole lot of additional information about her other than she started out as a circus performer, she learned tattooing from her husband, and her daughter went on to be a respected tattoo artist in her own right. What a family. Anyway, I know there are a lot of women with tattoos (myself included) on GT, so I just wanted to pass along Maud's name and her art.
