'Sue Lillian Brown, better known as Betty Broadbent, was only 18 years old in 1927 when she joined the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus as the youngest professional tattooed woman in the U.S.'
Josephine Clofullia (1827–75) was born hairy and had a 2-inch beard at the age of 8. At 14 she began to tour Europe. In Paris she met painter Fortune Clofullia and married him. She gained fame when she fashioned her beard in the imitation of that of Napoleon III. In return, the ruler gave her a large diamond. Josephine gave birth to two children; the first, a daughter who was born in 1851, died in infancy. Her son Albert, who was born the next year, was as hirsute as his mother had been.
