Description: This image depicts George Cardoza a Circus / Freak / Sideshow Tattoo Man. He looks to have a crown on and probably considered himself theKing of Tattoos. I could find no bio info on him online. The back is marked with his name and another, Augustine McKinon. Perhaps his real name? He seems to have been enamored with birds and animals. Nice overall condition with great contrast and detail!! The photographer, Eisenmann out of New York was well known for his freak show / side show circus related images.
