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.

    • I'm actually born and raised in Cincinnati! My dad is from near Pittsburgh, and I still have a lot of family there but was raised as a fan from the beginning.  My artist was a Bengals fan and grumbled throughout but did a great job!
    • Well, it's been almost a year so now I'm excited to have booked my next piece while on vacation in Austin a month from now! I'm in with Jon Sproul at Moon Tattoo and he's going to be filling in the last remaining spot on my leg, so (once reasonably healed) I'll be posting in both the Latest Tattoo Lowdown and the Squidpants threads. 
    • Here’s my progress so far on my sleeve from Bobby Cupparo @ LOVEMACHINE N.Y.C. We’re about 25 hours in so far - I think we’ve roughly got about that left before the project is finished. I had (and have) ink fallout from black inks so my blacks usually need some touching up.  The lionness was the first piece of the sleeve to be worked on, and was recently worked on this past Saturday. The mandrill is a few months finished at this point. Everything usually gets touched up a slight bit going into each session to address problem areas.
