DESCRIPTION

Tattooed baddies unite! Talk about a badass - Maud Wagner was a trailblazer as the first female tattoo artist in the United States. Born in 1877, Maud began her adult life as a circus performer, working within various travelling circuses. In the early 1900s, while working within the St Louis World’s Fair as an acrobat, aerialist and contortionist, she met Gus Wagner who taught her the art of tattooing.

Maud died in 1961 after many years of being one of few female tattoo artists in her country, and no doubt she would have faced unique hardships for being a woman in a perceived male realm. Maud and Gus were also two of the few tattoo artists to become renowned for stick and poke work; it’s likely Maud is the only female tattoo artist to achieve this renown. She died one of the most famous stick and poke tattoo artists of her generation.
