Myth of the High Class Hooker

The whole Spitzer thing has been done to death, including the de-mythologizing of the "well educated, good family" high-class call girl, but this caught my attention (NY Post):

"She vacationed in St. Tropez and carried luxury items from Cartier and Louis Vuitton. "Nobody knew she was a prostitute," the source said"

Nobody was tipped off by the tattoo on her hand?

Tattooing has certainly filtered beyond its lower class origins into, at the very least, professional sports, actors and actresses, and musicians. Lots of reputable persons have tats in discreet locations typically covered by clothing, and ankle tattoos can usually be obscured for appropriate occasions. But the stray hand ink is decidedly not upper class.
