Sailor Jerry Presents: Follow the Flash in Scotland

After the success of Jerry’s Open House, we’re heading back to Scotland this March to work with some mighty talented locals and inject a spray of colour, plus some Sailor Jerry attitude for a balls-to-the-walls Castle Party - turrets n’ all.

What the hell is a Sailor Jerry Castle Party, you ask? 

It’s an epic party. In a castle. Merging the best new bands, live art, food trucks and of course, the best cocktails in town. This is the ultimate house party, done Sailor Jerry style.

Spots are limited, keep reading to see how you can win yours…

If you’re coming, your chariot* will pick you up from Edinburgh, Dundee or Glasgow.

Special guest TBA – watch this space!


HOW TO WIN: Follow the Flash!
We’ll be popping up around 3 Scottish cities – Glasgow, Dundee, and Edinburgh – with a series of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins inspired tattoo flash designs. When you spot the flash in your city or at one of our events, simply snap a pic, post it to your Instagram including #SJFollowtheFlash, and tag us @sailorjerry for a chance to get on our guestlist with three of your mates.
Don’t forget to tag the mates you’d bring along!

Full list of flash art locations can be found at the bottom of this page. Winners announced April 10th and will be chosen from public Instagram posts. Full Ts and Cs here.

Expect the finest cuts and freshest beats as Sailor Jerry joins forces with three bad ass barbers.
We’re taking over for one day and offering free trims and Sailor Jerry goodies.
