The Tattooed Lady is a general term used to describe the first “self-made freaks” in circus sideshows. A precursor to modern body mutilation acts, these “freaks” enjoyed more freedom and financial independence than other women of the day. During the Victorian era these ladies were allowed to show much more skin than would be normally considered acceptable. By the fact that the body was the canvas, these women literally and figuratively exposed themselves to male onlookers and as such were tremendously popular sideshow acts. By today’s standards the Tattooed Lady sideshow would barely receive any attention and as such is an all but obsolete act.
