Victorian Tattoos

Add this to the pile of evidence that perhaps the Victorians weren’t so buttoned up after all: the 1880s were a time for Victorian tattoos.

As a followup to last week’s post about Victorian Era nipple rings… Victorian tattoos!

(princess post up Wednesday! it’s all done, just didn’t want to totally wreck posting schedule)
