Clyde had (5) tattoos...Bonnie had (1)
Bonnie & Clyde's Tattoos
Clyde had a heart & dagger with the initials "EBW"-outer arm
(was probably the initials of his ex-girlfriend Eleanor B. Williams),
a rose & leaves-left shoulder, a shield & anchor with the initials
"USN"-left arm, (although he was never in the Navy), a girl's face,
bearing the name "Grace"-right arm. the name "Anne"-left arm.
Bonnie had a tattoo above her right knee on her thigh, of double
hearts and arrow which contained the names "Bonnie & Roy"
It was Bert Grimm who is reputed to have tattooed (both).
I find that unlikely, since Bonnie had gotten her's, before hooking up
with Clyde Barrow. Bonnie had only one tattoo, "Bonnie & Roy".

Clyde in 1929
For whatever reason, young Clyde was a member of the Metropolitan Recreation Club
in Dallas. Perhaps he wanted to enjoy a good swim in the pool, or hit the Billiard tables.
Maybe, just maybe he wanted to lift weights to build up his slight physique!
