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.

Hundreds of thousands of people went to the Woodstock music festival in 1969, but how many people can say they met their significant other while they were there? Judy and Jerry Griffin met when Jerry’s friends stopped to pick up Judy while she was hitchhiking after her car broke down. Judy was unsure about riding with Jerry’s friends, but after she hopped in the VW Beetle she and Jerry made fast friends. Judy told People

I was just thinking, ‘Damn, now we can’t go,’ and we were dying to. Then Jerry and his friends pulled up. I stuck my head in and I saw that there was a woman in the car. I’d never hitchhiked before, but I figured, ‘Well, since there was a woman, it was fairly safe, and I probably should just get in the car.’

That ride culminated in a 50 year marriage, two sons, and five grandchildren. However it wasn’t until 2019 when the two found this photo that was taken of them at the festival. They’d known each other for less than 48 hours when the photo was taken.
