Betty Broadbent

This piece is based on Betty Broadbent who worked as a tattooed lady within many different circuses. This was the 'circus freaks' section of my fmp. I literally tattooed her tattoos onto her in this image, using a tattoo gun! I can now say, i respect tattooists even more than before. Tattoo machines are so difficult to use, my hand went numb after a while from all the buzzing!
