Sailor Jerry Day

Tattoo legend Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins died forty one years ago but his American traditional style of tattooing is more popular than ever. On Thursday, the exact anniversary of his death, the rum company named after him will be throwing a free party in NYC. As someone who has more than a dozen of his designs tattooed to them and coincidentally counts SJ Rum as one of his best clients I can’t think of anywhere I would rather be than Houston Hall on Thursday.

There will be free Sailor Jerry tattoos by the guys over at Three Kings. I have several tattoos by those guys and clearly you need some too. There will also be cheap rum drinks, burlesque and DJ’s by members of punk rock bands the Bouncing Souls & The Casualties. The party starts at 6pm and I would get there early if you wanna get tattooed. The list fills up fast!

Anyway, this is one of the busiest weeks of my life but I am still gonna make this party even though for once I am not even working it. I actually have to work another event early but I will be coming by late to hang out and probably end up with another new tattoo… See you Thursday!
