“We also saw some really amazing graffiti on our trip to Naples this past weekend. On Sunday we visited an abandoned housing project called “Scampia” which is now occupied by squatters.

Olive Oatman, 1858. She was the first tattooed white woman in the U.S. After her family was killed by Yavapais Indians, on a trip West in the eighteen-fifties, she was adopted and raised by Mohave Indians, who gave her a traditional tribal tattoo. When she was ransomed back, at age nineteen, she became a celebrity. Photograph courtesy of the Arizona Historical Society, Tucson, 1927.
