Tattooing Without a License | CriminalDefenseLawyer.com04.14.19

States have adopted a range of laws governing this profession because of the inherent risks to personal and public health involved. While not all states require someone giving a tattoo to have a license, most of them have license requirements of some kind.

The practice of tattooing has become quite popular in recent decades. States have adopted a range of laws governing this profession because of the inherent risks to personal and public health involved. While not all states require someone giving a tattoo to have a license, most of them have license requirements of some kind. Additionally, some cities or municipalities have adopted ordinances that apply to tattooing that may add requirements beyond those required by the state. In many states, it is a crime to give someone else a tattoo without having a proper state license.

State laws define tattooing slightly differently from one another, but they all cover any instance where someone uses a needle to inject pigments or dyes into another persons skin in order to leave indelible marks. The definition of tattooing does not require that any kind of compensation be exchanged between the person giving the tattoo and the person receiving it. This means, for example, that if a friend gives you a tattoo for free and he is not licensed to do so, he has committed a crime even though he never asked for or received any payment from you.

In states that require or allow for tattoo artist apprenticeships, the apprentice can practice only under the guidance or supervision of a properly licensed artist. For example, if you are an apprentice tattoo artist you cannot give tattoos unless you are being supervised by the licensed tattooist.

States regulate tattooing in one of two primary ways. First, a state may require individual tattoo artists to first apply for and receive a tattoo artist license before they give tattoos to anyone else. States also require tattoo establishments or tattoo parlors to also apply for and receive a license for the establishment. In states that require the establishment to be licensed, its common for them also to require that no tattooing may take place unless it is performed in a licensed tattoo establishment.

For example, some states require both the artist and the establishment to be licensed. This means that anyone working in the establishment must have a license and can perform tattoos only in that particular licensed tattoo parlor. It is illegal for a licensed tattoo artist to perform tattoos in unlicensed locations, such at his or her home. It is also illegal for a licensed tattoo establishment to allow someone who is not licensed to give tattoos at that location.

In addition to licensing requirements, the National Conference of State Legislatures reports that at least 45 states have adopted laws prohibiting minors from getting tattoos or piercings. Some of these laws are blanket prohibitions against anyone giving a tattoo to a minor, while others allow for minors to get tattoos if they have the permission of a parent or guardian. Anyone who tattoos a minor in violation of these laws faces criminal penalties.

The potential penalties involved for anyone convicted of tattooing without a license differ significantly from state to state. Some states allow for both monetary fines and possible jail or prison time, while others do not. In the vast majority of states, violating tattoo licensing requirements is a misdemeanor offense, though felony punishments are possible in some limited situations.

Fines. A person convicted of practicing tattooing without a proper license often faces a fine. In some states, the law only allows for maximum penalty of a fine, while in other states fines and potential jail time are possible. Fines differ widely, with some states allowing for maximum fine of $50, $500, or $1,000 or more.

Jail or prison. In states with laws that provide for potential incarceration sentences for tattooing without a license, the crimes are almost always misdemeanor offenses. This means that the maximum potential penalty is no more than a year in jail. Many state laws provide for much lighter sentences. For example, tattooing without a license in Florida is a second-degree misdemeanor with a maximum jail sentence of 60 days. In a small minority of states, felony criminal charges can apply if someone gives a tattoo to a minor without permission from a parent or guardian.

Probation. Courts can also impose a probation sentence if you are convicted of tattooing without a license. Probation requires you to comply with various probation conditions, including common conditions such as not committing any more crimes, not giving any more tattoos until obtaining proper licensure, and paying all court costs and fines.

While some states impose only minor penalties for someone who tattoos without a license, the penalties in other states and in some circumstances can be very severe. Not only can you face incarceration and significant fines, but if you are professional tattoo artist or someone aspiring to be one, your ability to practice your profession can be seriously limited if not permanently derailed. If you are facing a tattooing without a license charge, you should speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer near you as soon as you are able. State laws and municipal ordinances on tattooing differ significantly, and you need advice from an attorney who understands the laws that apply to your case and who has experience dealing with area police, prosecutors, and criminal courts.

Tattooing | American Goat Society04.14.19

AGS accepts tattoos and/or microchips as forms of identification; however, you MUST assign and list your tattoo sequence (both right and left ears) on the registration papers. Recording the tattoo sequence allows future owners the ability to tattoo the animal should they choose to do so. Keep in mind that not all members have a chip reader.

When tattooing your goats ears your registered herd tattoos should go in the right ear. This same registered herd tattoo will be used for all goats born on your property. The animal specific tattoo for each animal should go in the left ear. This tattoo will be different for every animal you tattoo. This tattoo consists of a letter for the year the animal was born followed by a sequential number for that particular animal. In 2009 the year letter is Z so the first kid born in 2009 would be Z1, second kid Z2; eighth kid would be Z8 and so on through the year. While standing behind your animal your left will be the animals left and your right will be the animals right. If you are facing the animal it would be opposite.

The specific letter is assigned for each year an animal is born. The year letter basically follows the alphabet. The letters G, I, O, Q, and U are not used.

Tattooing is a simple operation – so simple it can hardly be termed an operation, in fact. Its success depends entirely upon the operator and following a few simple rules.

The most important thing to remember is DO NOT alter your AGS approved ear tattoos EXCEPT in one very special case!! More on this later.

To reconcile tattoos so that any AGS goat with ears can also be registered with another registry without placing your AGS registration at risk:Find out what tattoo the other registry wants to appear on the goat. Put it on the tail (left or right tail web, or center tail). Fill out the other registrys application and INCLUDE EVERY TATTOO that is on the goat, including ears and tail. Keep in mind that when checking tattoos at shows, ADGA rules require the judge to either fill in a tattoo for each possible place there could be one, or write “none” on the show report if there is none. If a tattoo is present that is not on your registration certificate, your goat does not match your certificate. As of yet, this is not required of judges at AGS shows. Further, at this time, if you add a tail tattoo to a goat with ear tattoos that match its AGS registration certificate, it is not necessary to return your registration certificate to AGS to note the added tail tattoo as a change of tattoo, though of course this is permissible.

Here is the special case where you may change ear tattoos in pursuit of dual registration. You may add one or more digits to an AGS registered goat’s right (herd of origin) ear if and only if BOTH of the following are true:

IN NO OTHER CASE SHOULD EAR TATOOS BE ALTERED, OR YOU MAY PLACE YOUR AGS REGISTRATION IN PERIL.

What It’s Really Like to Get Permanent Eyebrow … – Glamour04.14.19

Five years ago, if we wanted in on a celebrity beauty secret, we had to wait for a reporter to hustle it out of someone on a red carpet or beg so-and-so’s glam squad to let us in on the tricks. Now we’ve got social media where Bella Thorne Snapchats her entire microblading procedure, Kylie Jenner gets real about her injections on her app, and an Instagram of Ariana Grande’s eyeliner technique goes viral.

That said, knowing what celebrities do and whether it’ll work for you (and your budget) is an entirely different story. So last year when I discovered one of Hollywood’s true beauty secrets, a woman named Dominique Bossavy, my intrigue was off the charts. Her specialty is microcolor infusionotherwise known as tattoo makeup.

Here’s the thing: I’ve been in the beauty industry for a decade, and the one treatment I normally steer friends away from is tattoo makeup. It’s not that I haven’t seen great work out thereI havebut because I’ve seen a lot more really bad work. Think thick blue tattoo eyebrows, eyeliner that isn’t even, etc. It’s fairly permanent, and if it’s not done well, it can be a big mistake.

Here’s a look at a more dramatic transformation Bossavy has done.

But seeing Bossavy’s work made me realize there really is an art to tattoo makeup. What first drew me to her is her Instagram. Like I said above, thanks to social media, it’s so easy to see the results of an artists’ work now. It’s literally at your fingertipsand I loved every single image I swiped through. You can tell she’s worked some magic on her clients, but not one of them looked like they had work done, which is exactly what I was going for. “The idea is to create an eyebrow shape that you’ll forget isn’t your own,” she told me. Couldn’t argue with that.

Second, I was into the fact that her system is all her own. From the ink she uses to the smaller tattoo needle she wields, “microcolor infusion” is a technique unique to her salon. She mixes three different-color tattoo dyes to fill in a dimensional brow shape and any sparse spots. (Important: This is not to be confused with “microblading,” which is a newer form of semipermanent makeup that features a manual blade containing multiple needles. Technicians use it to create tiny hairlike strokes to make brows look thicker, as opposed to creating a brow outline.)

The downside of brow tattoos? They don’t come cheap. Bossavy doesn’t have set prices because each client’s needs are customized, but you can imagine what A-listers will spend to always have perfectly groomed brows. Typically, though, microblading and semipermanent makeup can run anywhere between $400 and $800, depending on where you go and whether consultation fees are involved. And there’s a huge upside besides the gorgeous results: The process lasts anywhere from one to three years, all customizable based on your needs.

I could go on about how much I loved my brows afterward; how fluffy and realistic-looking they were; how they’ve lasted well over a year. But seeing is believing, and I filmed my entire experience. Click play and prepare to be just as obsessed. If it’s worth anything, I’ll 1,000-percent be doing it all over again in a year.

Police rebook man on more sex crime, tattooing of minor …04.14.19

A man booked last month on sex trafficking and tattooing of a minor charges was rebooked Monday (April 8) on more charges after police encountered another teenager with infected tattoos, court records show.

New Orleans police first arrested Darnell Johnson, 26, after a 17-year-old runaway girl told detectives he let her keep clothes at his house while she and another girl were being pimped out by two other men. Johnson gave the girl tattoos, including the one on the face, court records show.

Police said Johnson tattooed the 17-year-old girl during the same time period the girl and two other men, later identified as Jayson Figueroa and Cordarrell Rudolph, pimped out a 16-year-old runaway. After Figueroa and Rudolph had sex with the 16-year-old girl, they dropped the two girls off at Johnsons house, the records said.

A total of five people, including Figueroa and Rudolph, were arrested in New Orleans and St. Tammany Parish as a result of the investigation into sex trafficking in which police said girls who were being pimped out were also given tattoos, including a face tattoo for one girl that read numb, according to court records.

5 arrested in connection to sex-trafficking, tattooing of minors in New Orleans, St. Tammany

State troopers found a 16-year-old girl in a hotel after they believe she was drugged, beat and raped by seven men over the course of a week, according to court documents.

A week after Johnsons arrest, police encountered a 15-year-old in the 2400 block of Robert E. Lee Boulevard with several tattoos, including infected ones on each of her forearms. The girl boasted about the tattoos, but complained about their painfulness. The officer took her to the Childrens Hospital, where she was treated for a multitude of complaints, according to the new arrest warrant for Johnson.

The officer rummaged through evidence acquired by search warrant from Johnson and discovered a piece of paper with a sketch that mirrored the tattoo on the 15-year-old girl. When the detective asked the teen about her tattoos, she said she had met a man at his home, where he gave her three tattoos. The man later picked her up and allegedly had sex with her in his vehicle. When shown a picture of Johnson, she confirmed he was the man in question, the warrant shows.

Police rebooked Johnson on Monday on additional charges of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile and tattooing of juveniles. His bond was set at $17,500 for the new charges. As of his rebooking, Johnson had not posted the $22,000 bond related to the March charges.

The 26-year-old has a lengthy criminal history in Orleans and Jefferson parishes with a carnal knowledge of juvenile conviction from 2016 and domestic abuse convictions from 2014 and 2017.

Tattooing in Jewish Law | My Jewish Learning04.14.19

The prohibition of tattooing is found in the Torah: You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord (Leviticus 19:28).

It is the second part of this verse from which we derive the general prohibition against tattooing. From the outset there is disagreement about what precisely makes tattooing a prohibited act. The anonymous author of a mishnah [an individual statement in the compilation known as the Mishnah] states that it is the lasting and permanent nature of tattooing which makes it a culpable act: If a man wrote [on his skin] pricked-in writing, he is not culpable unless he writes it and pricks it in with ink or eye-paint or anything that leaves a lasting mark (Mishnah Makkot 3:6).

But Rabbi Simeon ben Judah disagrees and says that it is the inclusion of Gods name which makes it a culpable act: Rabbi Simeon ben Judah says in the name of Rabbi Simeon: He is not culpable unless he writes there the name [of a god], for it is written, Or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord’ (ibid.).

The Gemara[i.e., the Babylonian Talmud (BT)] goes on to debate whether it is the inclusion of Gods name or a pagan deity that makes it a culpable act.

Maimonides clearly sees the origin of this prohibition as an act of idolatry. He includes it in his section concerning idolatry and then explicitly states: This was a custom among the pagans who marked themselves for idolatry. But, [Maimonides] concludes that regardless of intent, the act of tattooing is prohibited (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Idolatry 12:11).

Professor Aaron Demsky of Bar-Ilan University, in an article in the Encyclopaedia Judaica (Writing), goes even further to suggest that non-idolatrous tattooing may have been permitted in biblical times. He cites the following biblical references: One shall say, I am the Lords, and another shall use the name of Jacob, and another shall mark his arm of the Lord and adopt the name of Israel (Isaiah 44:5), See, I have engraved You on the palms of my hands (Isaiah 49:16), and is a sign on every mans hand that all men may know His doings (Job 37:7).

While these verses may be purely metaphoric, Demsky suggests they could be taken literally as instances of tattooing that were acceptable in biblical times. He goes on to add that A. Cowley (in his 1923 book Aramaic Papyri of the Fifth Century B.C.) showed that in Elephantine [a city in Hellenistic Egypt], slaves of Jews were marked with the names of their owners as was the general practice.

Regardless of the exact limits of this prohibition, over time the rabbis clearly extended the prohibition to include all tattooing (Tosafot commentary to BT Gittin 20b).

In our day, the prohibition against all forms of tattooing regardless of their intent, should be maintained. In addition to the fact that Judaism has a long history of distaste for tattoos, tattooing becomes even more distasteful in a contemporary secular society that is constantly challenging the Jewish concept that we are created btzelem Elokim (in the image of God) and that our bodies are to be viewed as a precious gift on loan from God, to be entrusted into our care and [are] not our personal property to do with as we choose. Voluntary tattooing even if not done for idolatrous purposes expresses a negation of this fundamental Jewish perspective.

As tattoos become more popular in contemporary society, there is a need to reinforce the prohibition against tattooing in our communities and counterbalance it with education regarding the traditional concept that we are created btzelem Elokim. But, however distasteful we may find the practice there is no basis for restricting burial to Jews who violate this prohibition or even limiting their participation in synagogue ritual. The fact that someone may have violated the laws of kashrut at some point in his or her life or violated the laws of Shabbat would not merit such sanctions; the prohibition against tattooing is certainly no worse. It is only because of the permanent nature of the tattoo that the transgression is still visible.

New laser technology has raised the possibility of removing what was once irremovable. To date, this procedure is painful, long, and very expensive. However, it will probably not be long before the process is refined to the point where it will not be painful, overly involved, or very expensive. At such a time it might be appropriate for the [Conservative movements] law committee to consider whether removal of tattoos should become a requirement of teshuvah [repentance, or reversion to behavior according to Jewish norms], conversion, or burial.

The prohibition of tattooing throughout the halakhic literature deals only with personal, voluntary tattooing. With respect to the reprehensible practice of the Nazis who marked the arms of Jews with tattooed numbers and letters during the Shoah [Holocaust], the Shulhan Arukh [the authoritative 16th-century code of Jewish law] makes it clear that those who bear these tattoos are blameless: If it [the tattoo] was done in the flesh of another, the one to whom it was done is blameless (Shulhan Arukh, Yoreh Deah 180:2).

Tattoos which are used in cancer treatment or any similar medical procedure to permanently mark the body for necessary life saving treatment are also not included in the prohibition against tattooing (Shulhan Arukh, Yoreh Deah 180:3).

The prohibition against tattoos applies only to permanent marks to the skin. Therefore hand stamps or other popular childrens decorations which mimic tattoos and paint the skin in a non-permanent manner cannot be included under the prohibition of tattooing. However, lshem hinukh (for the purpose of education), it might be appropriate for parents to make the distinction clear to their children. These also present an excellent opportunity to introduce young children to the concept that we are created btzelem Elokim and the implications of that concept.

Tattooing is an explicit prohibition from the Torah. However, those who violate this prohibition may be buried in a Jewish cemetery and participate fully in all synagogue ritual. While no sanctions are imposed, the practice should continue to be discouraged as a violation of the Torah. At all times a Jew should remember that we are created btzelem Elokim. We are called upon to incorporate this understanding into all our decisions.

This responsum (a formal response by a rabbi to a question about proper Jewish practice) by a contemporary Conservative rabbi reviews relevant precedents and arrives at a conclusion very much like those reached by Reform and Orthodox authorities as well. One additional point raised by others is that tattoos are often desired by young people whose parents object, making it a possible violation of the precept to honor ones parents. The practical question to which Rabbi Lucas is responding has three parts: Is tattooing permitted? Would having a tattoo prevent a person from taking part in synagogue rituals? Would it preclude burial in a Jewish cemetery?

Technology Takes Tattoos into the Future04.05.19

A 3D rendering of the Neuma Hybrid. Machine image: Neuma Tattoo Machines

Ink is the new black. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration estimates that 45 million Americans are tattooed, and a poll from Harris finds marked men are now outnumbered by marked women.

What happened to the taboos around tattoos? Engineering. New technologies are expanding the artistic limits of tattooing while minimizing the discomforts, health risks, and permanence of extreme body art.

According to analysts at IBIS research, at least 8,000 tattoo parlors now serve a $3.4-billion annual U.S. demand. Even with more mainstream acceptance, tattoos retain their streetwise mystique, especially among the 40-and-under set who sport the lions share of the nations tattoos.

Ancient indigenous native cultures around the globe practiced tattooing, body painting, piercing, and scarification to express important spiritual or social messages. The global spread of European economic and religious influence led to the customs demise in many cultures, yet also introduced it to new generations of world travelers. In the early twentieth century, ethnologists like Wilfred Dyson Hambly documented some of the last vestiges of the original practice in isolated populations, capturing intricate body markings that still inspire artists today.

In recent Western history, tattoos have evoked the low-brow vibe of the worlds seaports, sideshows, cell blocks, and skid rows. Along with the social stigma, the practice has drawn unwanted scrutiny from public health officials. New York City even banned tattoo parlors outright in 1961, blaming them for an outbreak of hepatitis B. In the city of its U.S. rebirth, tattooing was performed illicitly in Bowery bucket shops for the next 36 years.

In 1891 Samuel O’Reilly revolutionized tattooing with his invention of the electric tattoo machine. Image: Rutgers.edu

Paleolithic tattoo artists decorated their clients using sharp sticks and red hot coals. Thousands of years later, the tools may be fancier but still perform the same bloody, wound-inflicting act. Whether by hand or with a machine, the artist uses needles to recreate a design below the surface of the skin. Tracing along a pre-drawn template, the artist pokes thousands of tiny, 1-mm-deep perforations in the skin. Ink flows in droplets through the perforations, leaving an indelible mark on the dermis. Before the first electric tattoo machines appeared in the 1890s, it was a painstaking manual process that could take days.

The big breakthrough in tattoo technology came in 1875 with Thomas Edisons electric pen and autographic press the first electric office duplicating system. Before widespread use of typewriters, the pen was used to engrave letters and drawings on a paper or wax stencil. The pens coil-powered stylus worked like a miniature jackhammer, punching small holes in the stencil at rates up to 3,000 per minute in sync with the clerks pen strokes. The document reproduction stage remained low-tech, relying on a manual ink roller and flat-bed press to print one duplicate at a time.

Although Edison was said to sport a modest tat of his own, he never intended his machine for such a subterranean use. However, the devices enormous potential for tattooing was immediately obvious to artists of the day. In 1891, a New York tattoo pioneer, Samuel O’Reilly, scored the first patent on an Edison-inspired electric machine. By the 1920s, the true precursor of todays basic machine became standard.

Most machines today are electric, operating either with a direct rotary drive or a two-coil electromagnetic motor. Some artists prefer pneumatic machines, which tend to be lighter, quieter, and lower-maintenance than electric models, yet they require a supply of compressed air. One of the newest twists on the old theme is the Neuma Hybrid, from Neuma Tattooing Machines, Granada Hills, CA. For artists on the go who want the performance of a pneumatic machine but dont want to haul an air compressor around, the Hybrid creates choices. Its engineered primarily as the next generation of the companys widely used N2 pneumatic machine, but with the addition of an electric module it can adapt to a standard 18-V power supply and RCA cables.

Tattooing with a MakerBot. Image: Le FabShop

Most of tattooings technological history has been spent making the job easier for human artists. But be careful for what you wish. A team of French design students adapted a 3D printer that could make tattoo artists totally unecessary.

As part of a competition sponsored by the French cultural ministry, the team of three ENSCI les Ateliers design students took a MakerBot printer, replaced its resin extruder with a makeshift tattoo needle, and programmed it to engrave a perfect permanent circle on a team members forearm.

Their first step was to practice on artificial skin with a tattoo machine borrowed from a local parlor. They programmed the printer software to create a perfect circle something that human operators find extremely difficult to do by hand. After adapting the printer nozzle to move a standard pen, they then worked out a way to hold the subjects skin taut with a section of tubing. With the practice run complete, the teamwent to work outfitting the printer to steer a real tattoo gun with equal precision. After modification to eliminate machine vibration, the students pushed print.

On the industrial innovation front, engineers are foregoing ink altogether in favor of more advanced media for skin-borne messaging. Implantable biosensors that transmit updated medical data through the skin using LED lights have potential in diabetes management. Motorola Mobility, part of Google, has recently patented an electronic neck tattoo that functions as a smartphone microphone, voice processing device, or according to the patent application a lie detector.

These new chapters in the history of tattooing may be written in disappearing ink, or they may leave an indelible impression. Either way, they reveal how deeply the art and science of tattooing has gotten under our skin.

The Prickly History Of Tattooing In America | HuffPost04.05.19

According to a Nielsen poll, one in five Americans has a tattoo, and nearly 90 percent of those who do never regret getting inked up.

Of course, it hasn’t always been this way. Tattoos were once taboo in the West, even though body art is an ancient practice elsewhere. A new book, 100 Years of Tattoos, explores this decorous transformation, following tattoo art as it turned from an act of rebellion to a widely practiced personal statement.

History tells us that the concept of self-branding was embraced fully in England in the 1860s after the Prince of Wales marked himself with a cross, partaking in a Medieval ritual. Meanwhile, the art of ink was in its fledging stages in America. Martin Hildebrandt, considered one of the country’s first tattoo artists, opened a shop in New York City in 1870, making tattoos accessible for citizens who weren’t able to travel overseas. But before Hildebrandt’s business — which involved training apprentices — fully took off, most tattooed Americans were soldiers inking up for good luck, emblazoning themselves with reminders of their lives back home.

American tattoo art’s initial function as a sort of patriotic act inspired many styles that would come to define it. Artist Paul Rogers, owner of a trailer that came to be known as the Iron Factory, got his start tattooing soldiers with eagles and other winged creatures. He’d go on to influence Ed Hardy and others, both with his technology and his aesthetic, which included American flags, plump hearts and buxom women. And, although the U.S. Navy disapproved of pinup tattoos for a period, they were still popular among its members. Those would-be soldiers with tattoos that were deemed inappropriate due to nudity would go so far as to add clothes to their preexisting inked ladies.

While wartime America was keen on tattoos, in less-wealthy urban districts and overseas the art was mostly confined to a small clientele. Like most aesthetic trends, tattooing didn’t make its way to rural America quickly. Small-town introductions to body ink came via the circus, where those with body art were billed as bizarre attractions. In 100 Years of Tattoos, author David McComb digs into the fascinating underbelly of the industry. He discusses the gender divide among tattooed circus performers, and provides elucidating captions for images of women covered head-to-toe in body art. A picture of a totally inked woman, then employed as a sideshow act, depicts her posing proudly, covered in religious iconography and regal, historical portraits.

Women participated in the bubbling tattoo industry, which still remained beneath the surface of popular culture through the buttoned-up 1950s and early 60s. Notably, their inked art was at times an act of submission, especially among biker gangs. One spread in McComb’s book pictures a girl showing off a growing sleeve of hearts, with “Property of Alan” scrawled above it. It wasn’t until the 1970s, when what the author calls “the macho world of ink” was opened to women in new and empowering ways, that more feminine designs such as subtle shading and floral imagery became popular. Still, by 1979, female tattoo artists such as SuzAnne Fauser, whose depiction of a powerful pirate donning a stern expression and thick tresses can be seen below, struggled to make their mark in the industry.

McComb meticulously explores these corners of the industry, highlighting everything from the significance of tattooing within prisons to the impact of the Western-influenced ban Japan placed on tattoos at the end of the 19th century. See images from his book below.
