DIY Silver Tattoo Tutorial from The Makers.This is real silver leaf, not silver foil. From personal experience, when you work around silver or gold leaf you don’t want to make mistakes (because it isn’t cheap). Mistakes include wasting it by cutting to much, sneezing or coughing and having it crumple up on itself, and not smoothing it enough so it doesn’t stick.

Joe Black Fox, a Sioux Indian from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show (1900) by Gertrude Käsebier
Käsebier was given the task of portraying the Lakota Sioux and the accompanying show “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.” This became personal project which would later bring her fame. What is interesting about her photographs, in contrast to other photographers who photographed the Indians, is that it is readily visible that the people were at ease, without poses (as evidenced by this photo). By the end of the project she had become friends with many of the people whom she had photographed. Another interesting point about her work is that it not only portrayed men, but also women and children.
