Maud Wagner was the first known female tattoo artist in the United States. Little is known about this awesome vintage lady, however according to The New Yorker, Maud traded a date with her husband-to-be Gus Wagner in 1907 for tattoo lessons. Now that’s impressive!

This is a beautiful portrait of one brave and tough woman! What do you think: would Maud be the ultimate all-around badass today? We think so! She definitely was back in the 1910’s, but she would fit right in today as well!
