One of my favorite feminist mentors has a fabulous Emma Goldman tattoo on her forearm so as a gift to her for being so great to me for years, I made this for her.





I hope you like it!  I know she will.

If you have never heard of Emma Goldman and want to know why she is so great check out this link:

I found this pattern and other awesome feminist patterns at Radical Crosstitch DIY.  Here is a link:

Oh my goodness.  This is quite cool!  <3 Emma G.  I'm thinking about getting a tattoo sleeve that incorporates famous "badly behaving women" and Emma Goldman is definitely going to be part of it.
