[Un]masking the Body
Tattoos,
Authority,
and Bodily

Rhetoric

-Khimen K. Cooper
Women are "cast in the role of the body" while men on the other hand play the "pure idea," or the actual individual (Bordo 5).
"The body
as not 'me'
but
'with'
me."
(Bordo 2)
"Blur the boundary between beauty and beast..."
(Harlow 187)
"On a woman's
body any tattoo
becomes bodily
excess. When a
woman's body
is a sex object, a
tattooed woman's
body is a lascivious
sex object; when
a woman's body is
nature, a tattooed
woman's
body is primitive; when a woman's body is spectacle,
a tattooed woman's body is a show."
(Braunberger 2)
