Amazing Documentary on Sailor Jerry that sucked me in

Recommended Posts

I would say any person worth the air they breath should see Hori Smoku. Really gives a good insight into some of the early-ish times and war times of American traditional tattooing and then also touches on some of the Japanese influence. All in all, great doc.

What is the name of the Ed Hardy one?

I finally got enough time to sit down and watch this on Hulu.

There was some really interesting insite to the early tattooer's, and culture.

It also gave me more respect for the art from that time period after watching it.

Things like, Purple Ink... who knew?

so I watched it lastnight,I loved it,5 out of 5

I liked the historical information of the tattoo world.

I would have liked to have known him.

I think any good human being would have liked to have known Jerry. Strong, steadfast people like him is what helped get tattooing to what it is now. It is up to all of us to bring it back and carry on the demeanor and character he showed.

    • Welcome. I think a lot of things can have an affect on felt pain... placement, your state of mind, general health, etc.  Do what they recommend, rest, good meal before, hydrated, take a snack along and you'll be fine.  Just stay calm and don't make it worse than it is.  Maybe let everyone know where you're getting it for more specific advice.
    • I’m pretty new to this site so sorry if i don’t really understand how to work it, but i’m getting my second tattoo tomorrow and i’m excited but also nervous because it’s a different body part i’ve never gotten tattooed before AND it’s a different design and style of tattoo than my first so i’m not sure what to expect besides the feeling of getting repeatedly stabbed by a needle lol. I’m mostly just nervous about the pain where it’s going to be located, i’m not expecting it to be painless because let’s be real pretty much all tattoos have some pain.
