Sailor Jerry Tattoos
"Good work ain't cheap. Cheap work ain't good." - Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins.
A Sailor Jerry tattoo was characterized by bold unwavering lines with a refined use of color and amazing detail (the riggings in his clipper ship tattoos were nautically accurate). His one-of-a-kind work combined American design and traditions with Asiatic color and sensibilities. His visionary style is revered to this day.
