72 years ago today… It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity… “Tattooed Woman Makes Big Mistake on Bowery”

New York Herald Tribune, July 24, 1941
Tattooed Woman Makes Big Mistake on Bowery
Mildred Hull, forty-five years old, a tattooed woman and tattoo artist… with a natural distaste for the commonplace, threw a bottle at a friend who had made a conventional remark about the weather. The bottle struck a police radio patrol car.
The incident occurred in front of Ms. Hull’s tattooing establishment at 2 1/2 Bowery… Miss Hull let the bottle fly with an uninhibited swing…
Both went to jail.”
