Sailor Jerry Rum pays homage to the life of American tattoo master Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins with a series of FREE public screenings of the documentary from director Erich Weiss.
Sailor Jerry, or Hori Smoku as he came to be known by the Japanese, pioneered the techniques, the aesthetics, the colors and ultimately the cleanliness of the American tattoo industry. Fueled mostly by the insurgence of the tattoo subculture, this feature-length documentary has reached Amazon.com Top 100 in the documentary category.
Put it this way, if you think Ed Hardy is just a wildly successful clothing brand (like I did), you need to watch this film. Tell ’em Average Betty sent you! LOL
