Tattooed Lady Marion Hollier
The classic record album 'Indelibly Stamped' by the group 'Supertramp' had on its cover the tattooed lady Marion Hollier and not Rusty Skuse as is often thought.
The record album 'Indelibly Stamped' (released June 1971) had on its cover tattooed lady Marion Hollier and its not Rusty Skuse of which many people believe the picture on the sleeve to be - The confusion comes via the names 'Rusty and Billy' seen tattooed on the lower left arm of the recipient - The give away to it being Marion on the 'Supertramp' album cover is the tattooed roses on her topless chest - which was quite a rare sight to see back in those far off days of the early 70's.
Marion was a great fan of the 'Bristol Tattoo Club' (no pun intended) meetings in the 1960's - and was indeed tattooed extensively by Les Skuse Snr - its believed Marion stopped getting tattooed after Les died on the 14th of June 1973 - but it is not known why she had Bill and Rusty tattooed on her forearm - or indeed what became of her.
