Introducing the first known female tattoo artist in America.
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!
The 1950's rockabilly fashion and music trend, marked by white, working class, rural America and the combination of blues, country and rock n' roll, peaked in the 1950's. However, rockabilly may have just gotten one of its ultimate hurrahs in the 1980's when France went crazy over the trend.
As soon as they saw the Lomo'Instant Square, tattoo artist Michelle Santana and her manager Naomi Perkins, both based at Sacred Tattoo in New York City, had some really exciting ideas of how they might use it around the shop. Check out their ideas, insights, and photos!
And once again, art history has almost forgotten to write this rather very important figure in early cinema. The female pioneer of early French cinema is one of the first to experiment with sound syncing, color tinting, interracial casting and special effects.
