"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 Bodies of Subversion is the first history of women’s tattoo art, providing a fascinating excursion to a subculture that dates back into the nineteenth-century and includes many never-before-seen photos of tattooed women from the last century. Author Margot Mifflin notes that women’s interest in tattoos surged in the suffragist 20s and the feminist 70s. She chronicles: * Breast cancer survivors of the 90s who tattoo their mastectomy scars as an alternative to reconstructive surgery or prosthetics. * The parallel rise of tattooing and cosmetic surgery during the 80s when women tattooists became soul doctors to a nation afflicted with body anxieties. * Maud Wagner, the first known woman tattooist, who in 1904 traded a date with her tattooist husband-to-be for an apprenticeship. * Victorian society women who wore tattoos as custom couture, including Winston Churchill’s mother, who wore a serpent on her wrist. * Nineteeth-century sideshow attractions who created fantastic abduction tales in which they claimed to have been forcibly tattooed. “In Bodies of Subversion, Margot Mifflin insightfully chronicles the saga of skin as signage. Through compelling anecdotes and cleverly astute analysis, she shows and tells us new histories about women, tattoos, public pictures, and private parts. It’s an indelible account of an indelible piece of cultural history.” —Barbara Kruger, artist

December 1954: the old city in winter wears its two hundred years of grime and vice without any shame. The paint peels from ramshackle homes, and the streets congeal with snow and mud. Weary pedestrians trudge through the bleakness with chins tucked below the collars of threadbare coats. Nothing comes easy to the old city, and nothing ever changes -- too many tangled secrets and too many unspoken debts. And yet a new suspension bridge, being built out over the harbour to Dartmouth and set to open in the spring, promises a better tomorrow. Such promised are not easy to keep. On the street, hard-drinking Halifax police detective Ray Vargas has an unfailing habit for finding trouble, and when a man is found shot to death in the back of a Chevy truck, Vargas finds more trouble than he can handle -- the murdered man is his oldest friend and the husband of his lover. Frank's death reminds Ray of an unspoken debt left unpaid. He sets off to find a killer in a city that doesn't much want a killer to be found. At every turn, he encounters lies and danger. With his partner Artie Brennan and friends Ezekiel Dixon and jazz great Louis Armstrong, Ray tries to make sense of the deepening mystery, but hope is hard to come by -- at least until he meets Lee White, Frank's one-time assistant, who might just be his own bridge to a better tomorrow. Nothing in Halifax is what it seems. As the tension builds, and the stakes grow higher, Ray knows that his own future with Lee depends on his solving the mystery. But to do that, he must make a difficult choice: cross a bridge -- or burn it.

Discover Dark Side of American Past and the Shocking History Of The Oatman Sisters Massacre Are you a history lover? Do you like to discover new and obscure facts about historical events that transpired? If so, then you are in for a treat, because this history book offers precisely that. Not many people have heard of the name Olive Oatman, yet her story has been an inspiration for books, poems, television shows, and feature films. Olive Oatman was a young girl who experienced horrible tragedies throughout most of her early life but put them behind her as a young woman and became the first female public speaker of her time. The Captivity Of The Oatman Girls, will take you on a mind-blowing and equally shocking journey through the dark side of American history. After witnessing her family's brutal massacre at age 14, Olive was taken captive by the murderous Yavapai Indians. A year later, she was traded to Mohave Indians, who embraced her as one of their own. That's when she gained her famous "Blue Tattoo," a tattoo that would become a symbol of Native Indian brutality and vileness. At age 19, she was traded once again, but this time to her white people, and she was finally able to tell her story. Compelling narrative and lesser-known facts (compiled from multiple sources, letters and diaries of surviving Oatman family members and their relatives, and witness statements) will show you a whole new dimension and shine a new angle on the events Olive Oatman lived through. Discover everything about Olive Oatman, the American frontier heroine and the girl with the Blue Tattoo, and explore the beginnings of American history - from Olivia's birth to her death and the legacy she left behind.
