Sailor Jerry

Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry is a good, solid, thoroughly entertaining documentary on the legendary tattoo artist and American icon Norman Collins aka Sailor Jerry.

Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry is a feature length documentary exploring the roots of American tattooing through the life of its most iconoclastic figure, Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins. Considered by many the foremost tattoo artist of all time, Collins is the father of modern day tattooing, whose uncompromising lifestyle and larger than life persona made him an American legend. Through rare interviews, photographs and hours of archival footage, Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry: The Life and Times of Norman Keith Collins, explores the past, present and future of the global tattooing phenomenon.”

The most influential American tattoo artist to have ever lived and the man who inspired my daughter to get one of his designs tattooed from her ankle to her thigh, Sailor Jerry.
