Maud Wagner

Maud Wagner

Isn’t she the awesomest lady you have ever seen?! The picture was taken in 1911. Can you imagine? Maude was the first female tattoo artist in the USA and the coolest person of the 20th century! Just look at those tattoos, that dress, the hair, the brows, the expression on her face! Everything about her is flawless. If I had a time machine, I’d travel back to the 20th century just to meet her and talk to her. I have seen only one picture of her and know only that Gus (her husband) and Maud were circus performers –Maud was an aerialist and contortionist. Maud traded a date with Gus Wagner, her husband-to-be, for tattoo lessons! This is the highest level of coolness!
