Bodies of Subversion traces the history of women and tattoo in Western society from the early 1880s to the present, charting the special significance tattooing has for women as a powerfully transgressive form of self-expression. “In this provocative work full of intriguing female characters from tattoo history, Margot Mifflin makes a persuasive case for the tattooed woman as an emblem of female self-expression.” — Susan Faludi

Review:

'Mifflin's book is a fascinating and mesmerising journey... it is being reissued as a lavish new hardcover edition to celebrate the fact that there are now more inked women in America than tattooed men.... the best book about female ink ever!' ---- Bizarre Magazine (July)
