Woman celebrates 100 years of tattoos by getting 11 stunning designs done in a week


In an impressive display of both bravery and patience, a woman has had 11 intricate tattoos done over the space of just seven days, in honour of 100 years of ink trends.

Casey Lubin had only two small discrete tattoos when she put herself forward for Cut's latest 100 years of Beauty series.

Despite being virtually ink-free, Lubin, from Ohio, totally embraced having her skin used to chronicle the most distinctive tattoo styles from every decade since 1910.

“I think it's great that we can use our body as a canvas and it's really cool that you can make art a part of your body,” she explains. “If your body is your temple, then you should be able to decorate it the way you want, right?”

Casey's tattoos are the work of Clae Welch, who researched the most distinctive designs of the tattoo “masters” of each decade.

A dark floral motif on Casey's back represents Charlie Wagner in the 1910s and is followed by a recreation of Amund Dietzel's owl girl design on her forearm to sum up the 1920s.

Her first colour tattoo is an owl inspired by Sailor Jerry, aka Norman Collins, to represent the 1950s, while Janis Joplin's 1960s Florentine bracelet by ink icon Lyle Tuttle adorns her wrist.

Modern portrait master Nikko Hurtado is honoured with a 2010s homage in the shape of a giant cat's face on her right shoulder.
