additionally, i'm considering having her GET the tattoo in the story, versus already having it when my heroine meets her. does anyone have information about what tattooing procedures were like then? or where one might have gone? i have several tattoos myself, but i suspect the places one went to procure a tattoo were drastically different back then.
all suggestions, replies appreciated, and thank you in advance!
