Victorian Tatoo'ing

I was surprised to learn how popular Tattoo'ing was amongst the Victorian Elite and society. A number of European Royality sported tattoo's apparently.

Anyone reccommend a good book, or website, that deals with Tattoo'ing in late 19th Century Europe? Looking at it more from the social aspect than the art and design aspect (although obviously I'd like to see imagery of the deisgns and artwork used).

Cheers, A
