It’s not wild to see a young woman covered in tattoos today. Most people under the age of 30 have a couple. It’s cool, it’s normal, there’s nothing untoward about it; but that wasn’t the case in the 1920s. Back then, Stella Grassman was such an oddity for her tattoos that she worked as a attraction with the Ringling Brotheres, Barnum & Bailey Circus.

When she wasn’t traveling with the carnival, Stella and her husband worked as tattoo artists in Newark, New Jersey before moving to Charleston, South Carolina. The couple split up in the mid-‘50s but they share a grave plot in South Carolina.
