Newly revised and expanded, Bodies of Subversion remains the only book to chronicle the history of both tattooed women and women tattooists, providing a fascinating excursion into a subculture that dates back to the nineteenth century.

This new edition features expanded historical chapters and an added chapter on the new millennium, introducing dozens of artists, including Kat Von D, the most famous tattooist, male or female, in the world. It chronicles the impact of reality shows on women's tattoo culture; breast cancer survivors; and therapeutic uses of tattooing for women leaving gangs, prisons, or situations of domestic abuse. With nearly 200 photos, Bodies of Subversion is an essential guide to the culture of tattooed women.
