The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania, April 20, 1902

“Not too long ago, too, a lady came to me to have a cat’s head tattooed on her arm.”

Newspaper clipping was February 6, 1910 - not April 20, 1902, my bad!

George Burchett’s Wikipedia page

George ‘Professor’ Burchett (also styled the ‘King of Tattooists’) was born George Burchett-Davis on 23 August 1872 in the English seaside town of Brighton, East Sussex and became one of the most famous tattoo artists in the world.

Having been expelled from school at 12 for tattooing his classmates, he joined the Royal Navy at 13, developing his skills while travelling overseas as a deckhand on the HMS Vincent. After absconding from the Navy, he returned to England.

With a studio on Mile End Road, and 72 Waterloo Road, London, Burchett became the first star tattooist and a Favorite among the wealthy upper class and European royalty. Among his customers were King Alfonso XIII of Spain, and King Frederick IX of Denmark. Though it was reputed that he tattooed the ‘Sailor King’ George V of the United Kingdom, there is no reliable evidence to attest to this actually being the case. He also tattooed Horace Ridler (‘The Great Omi’).

He constantly designed new tattoos from his worldwide travel, incorporating African, Japanese and Southeast Asian motifs into his work. In the 1930s, he developed cosmetic tattooing with such techniques as permanently darkening eyebrows.

Na którym to soborze ustalili, że zwierzęta nie mają duszy? Wczoraj widziałam w telewizji psa, nowofundlandczyka. Przebiegł sześćset kilometrów, żeby odnaleźć swoich państwa, kiedy wyjechali na wakacje w Pireneje. Jak dotąd nie spotkałam biskupa, który by się na to zdobył. Jeżeli ten pies nie ma duszy, to pytam, czym jest dusza i kto w ogóle ją ma?
