Swastika Burchett

Edith Burchett the Wife of George.
George 'Professor' Burchett (also styled the 'King of Tattooists') was born George Burchett-Davis on August 23, 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, where he was trained in tattoo artistry in London by the legendary English tattooists Tom Riley and Sutherland MacDonald.
