Groucho Marx famously sung about “Lydia the tattooed lady”, but Pam Nash was the real thing. She rose to fame during the 1950s and 60s, as one of the most photographed members of the Bristol Tattoo Club. The Bristol Tattoo Club (or 'BTC' for short) was the brainchild of tattoo artists Les Skuse. Both he and Pam are pictured here. He founded the club in 1953 in order to raise awareness and steer people away from the misconception that only 'bad people' or armed forces members had tattoos. Les wanted not only tattoo artists, but also tattoo fans alike to show off their inkwork with pride. This particular piece he’s putting on Pam Nash features a snow-capped volcano, pagodas, and dragons. The piece, which was one of an alleged 40 she had, won her the award for "the best tattooed girl of the year".
