salliefordThis was my great great grandmother, Mary Dunlap. She was a tattooed lady. I have 3 tattoos (that I'll post) & plan to get many more.

- kskucasWhat kind of stuff was your gggrandma into? Did women get tattoos in late 1800's??
- sallieford@kskucas my gggrandma was in a sideshow that traveled with the circus. There is a book about it: "The tattooed lady: A history" by Amelia Klem Osterud. It was her job.
- sallieford@kskucas she also later became a snake charmer. True story.
- kskucasThat's amazing and so awesome. Circus was the only thing @ericivy and I could think of! I'll have to check out the book. Great roots, Sallie!
- meghanrussellsampsonMy grandma's maiden name was Dunlap, maybe we're related? @triplesticktape @lynniethestarr
- gumdroplollipopYES! Wouldn't THAT throw a few of the modern-day Dunlaps for a loop!? 😉 @meghanrussellsampson @lynniethestarr @nellienoelle @nancyrdunlap @stakesandsilverbullets
- sallieford@meghanrussellsampson that would be crazy! Her husband was named Archie Dunlap. He was is the circus too.
- bohemimama@audley_enough that's incredible!!!
