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.”
