Tattooed Man Sideshow Poster - from $38

Behold this amazing 19th century advertising print for sideshow attraction Captain George Costentenus, "The Tattooed Greek" who claimed to have been captured and tattooed against his will in Chinese Tartary (an area stretching east from Tibet through Mongolia, to Manchuria) as punishment for rebellion against the King. According to legend, the torture was carried out for 3 hours each day, over a period of seven months. His two companions, captured and sentenced along side him, died during the process. He was set free, or some say escaped, with 388 distinct tattoos.

The Captain was covered with traditional Burmese tattooing featuring flowers, animals, and writing in striking blue and red inks made of indigo and cinnabar. He was the first man to display a full body tattoo with his face, scalp, genitals and finger webbing all tattooed. The only parts of his body left bare were his ears, nose, and the soles of his feet. Captain Costentenus exhibited himself under contract with PT Barnum in the United States, with the Great Farini at The Royal Aquarium in London (seen here), and the Folies Bergère in Paris. He is said to have retired wealthy, though with failing eyesight, to his estate in Greece.
