Tattoo History Daily
There's a new tattoo blog out that I'm loving: Tattoo History Daily, which is on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. The daily dose of tattoo history goodness is brought to you by interdisciplinary scholar Dr. Anna Felicity Friedman.
The images are from archival research and/or her personal collection, and are fantastically curated, like this one above: "Tattoos as part of the US Army's 1889 plan to help id deserters, from Alden's 1896 article in The American Anthropologist." Or the image below, a cover to a 1957 pulp fiction/science fiction novella from her archive.
While the blog is just getting started, there's plenty to browse and enjoy. Check it!
