Nora Hildebrandt, was among the first tattooed lady attractions to grace the dime museum stage. She was covered by her first husband Martin Hildebrandt, and later exhibited with her second husband tattooed man Jacob Gunther aka Jacob Hildebrandt.

Note: A marriage record for Martin Hildebrandt and Nora (Keaton) Hildebrandt has yet to be located. Although it's been suggested they had a common law marriage, it's just as possible their marriage was documented at some point. Numerous records from the 1800s seem to have been misplaced and/or indexed incorrectly in digitized databases.
