HOST: ...and here is the moment we have all been waiting for. Our runner up for 1939's Miss Tattoo Contest goes to... Lydia!
(Host crowns Lydia with a red robe as she expresses disappointment at another humiliation)
HOST: As our 2nd place winner, a song has been written especially for her. Hit it boys...
Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia?
Lydia the Tattooed Lady
She has eyes that folks adore so,
and a torso even more so
Lydia, oh Lydia that encyclo-pedia
Oh Lydia The Queen of Tattoo!
*Little does Lydia know that during the next 74 years, her song will be performed by many and most recently featured as a ring tone in the final episode of Breaking Bad!
Lydia was inspired by Mimi Kirchners work, and started her life as a pillowcase from Dirty Linen's "Suburban Toile" line. After removing all seams, the pillowcase was soaked in a mild coffee/tea solution to give it a fleshy color. Lydia's face and hands are stitched with love (eventho she has not yet experienced it) and consideration was given toward each tattoo before her body parts were cut out.
Lydia's tattoos represent her life story and include:
Foliage on her legs to hide stubble
Birds on her chest express freedom
A removable top (which requires a 10 cent charge for viewing) teases her audience with power lines and lets them know show she is no longer a small town girl
Thanks for viewing!
