A collection of stories told from the tattoo artists perspective. This is the first in a series of crazy stories documenting the everyday happenings in a real street shop, all of which are real and only ever so slightly exaggerated to show detail. Misspelled names, strange requests, loss of bowel control... You know, the usual. Don't let the television fool you, this is what really goes down in tattoo parlors.
This book is a comprehensive analysis of a neglected aspect of Chartism, its poetry. Here the Chartists are documented as poet-politicians. In order to show how much this poetry can contribute to a deeper understanding of the movement, the poems are treated as literary pieces and as historical sources. Being a mass phenomenon, these poems and songs served as a vehicle of Chartism. They not only express critical insights into society, but also, and even more so, reveal the emotions and values which brought about the mass consensus.
