entitled “brothel portrait” but have no further info on her or the photo

This is Maud Wagner, one of the first female tattoo artists in the United States, and also a circus former: both an aerialist and contortionist. She was decidedly not a brothel worker (I’m pro-sex work by the way, but some people see a photo of any alternative-looking lady and think: “oh she was probably a prostitute,” which I think is generally quite sexist). Maud learned tattooing from her husband, and taught her daughter tattoo art as well.
I happened to know who this was by sight, but if you are ever curious about things like this, you can do a reverse image search on google. I just tried using this jpeg url, and it had her name on the first page of search results.

great, thanks
If you discount First Nation and Native American Nations who were practicing tattoo art years before there was an “america,’ true enough.  I don’t discount that history despite our ethnocentric social system.

Samoan winger, Lome Fa’atau, shows off his traditional Samoan
tattoo (pe’a) during the Rugby World Cup 2003 held in Australia. Lome
said, that the pe’a was a way for young Samoan men to honour their heritage
and show respect for their culture.  The pe’a took nine days to complete with the
entire operation being carried out with a pig’s tooth attached to a drum stick.
