In memory of Mildred Hall-Lady Tattoo Artist

New York Times, Aug. 16, 1946

A woman said by the police and by former associates to have been known to countless seafaring men the world over as "Millie Hall the Tatoo Lady" was found dead yesterday in a rest room in the Gladworth Company, Inc., restaurant at 199 worth Street. Her entire body, with the exception of her face and hands, was covered with Tattooing.

Proprietors of tattooing establishments on the Bowery said "Millie" had been known to them as for a long period as an expert in the tattooing "art," and had worked in a number of tattooing places. Sailors for whom she had wrought designs in the past sought her out when they desired additional tattooing, they said. Occasionally she took summer vacations to work in sideshows.

No one questioned by the police, however, appeared to know any other details about "Millie.". On her person was found a savings bank book bearing the name Mildred Lee, but no address, and showing $135 on deposit.

When found lying on the rest room floor by carmine cerone, the restaurant manager, "Millie" was wearing a yellow blouse, blue slacks, blue bobby sox and brown and white sport shoes. Beside her, the police said, was a bottle of pills.

The police declared that she had been ill and apparently had died of natural causes. She was believe to be about 50 years old.
