Bodies of Subversion: A Secret History Of Women And Tattoo

The third edition of Bodies of Subversion: A Secret History of Women and Tattoo was released this week, and it promises more than 100 new photographs of women sportin' tattoos throughout history. Way to go, ladies! Crushing the social norm and all that. This New Yorker article on the book also mentions that more women than men were tattooed in 2012 in the U.S. To me, this seems like a victory for women everywhere, but I'm sure my mom would be clutching her pearls. Anyway, suck it, fellas!—Katie
