New Exhibit: Tattooed & Tenacious: Inked Women in California History

March 15 - September 27

The Camron-Stanford House is pleased to announce a new exhibit: “Tattooed and Tenacious: Inked Women in California History.”

From upper-class women who started the tattoo craze to the working-class Tattooed Ladies who performed in circus sideshows, this exhibit puts the foremothers of modern tattooing in the spotlight. Through photographs and personal histories, this exhibit uncovers the fascinating and largely unknown stories of women and tattoos before WWII. A Show stopping mannequin, hand drawn by current Bay Area female tattoo artists and specifically commissioned for this show, highlights how far women and tattooing have come.

Exhibit open March 15 – September 27, 2020.


“Tattooed and Tenacious: Inked Women in California History” was originated by curator Amy Cohen at the Hayward Area Historical Society in Hayward, CA, and is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
