Coney Island Freaks, B-Girls & Tattooing
For fans of sideshow, here's a video look back at Coney Island's beautiful freaks, dancing girls and even a bit of tattoo history (around the 4:10 mark). Today's resident performers continue traditional sideshow arts, like sword swallowing, with a contemporary edge, and also attract guest performers like our fave, The Lizardman.
[The video is part of the Prelinger Archive, which I highly recommend to artists looking for public domain films and clips.]
