Carnival Tattoo

Artoria, born in Wisconsin in 1893, with the birth name of Anna Mae Burlingston. Apparently she met her future husband Charles ‘Red’ Gibbons whilst hanging around outside a carnival. He was a tattoo artist and told her that he could make famous and she could see the world if she let him tattoo her and join the carnival. What a lovely wedding proposal! Although, this was quite normal for most tattooed ladies of the time, with their tattooist husbands making them their calling cards so to speak.

Not the actual butterfly tattoo but I want THIS rainbow sucker for my candy sleeve!!

People always criticize tattoos and use the argument "how will they look when your old?" Well I quite honestly don't think some ink diminishes old wrinkly skin's beauty

I would remove the flowy part around the neck, but the inspiration from classic American and carnival/ gypsy styling makes it very cool.
