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
