Tattoos ??

I don’t know why this came through my mind but I thought I would throw it out there and ask. Today the art of tattooing is so prevalent that they say one in every four of us has a tattoo. Now this is today but for many years tattooing fell by the wayside. But back before and after the second world war it also flourished.

Looking at my collection of ventriloquist figures and thinking about the fact that many of them date from that period I was wondering if anyone ever heard or had seen any figure used that may have had any tattoos. I told you this was a strange thought but I just had to ask.

Please feel free to make any comments you like on this strange thought.
