Bodies of Subversion was the first history of women's tattoo art when it was first released in 1997, providing a fascinating excursion to a subculture that dates back to the 19th century and includes many never-before-seen photographs of tattooed women from the last century. This revised and expanded edition remains the only book to chronicle both the history of tattooos on women and female tatooists, containing all the information and images that made the original such a great success. Includes new chapters and 50 new photos.
