Tattoo You

I'll likely never get a tattoo. Piercings I'm good with, tattoos not so much. But I admire the artwork and skill of great tattoo artists, and I'm particularly smitten with the work of Sailor Jerry.

So this bracelet is my homage to him. I just finished it last night and I'm eager to wear it and see what my real tattooed friends think of it.

More on Sailor Jerry courtesy Wikipedia:

Norman Keith Collins (January 14, 1911 – June 12, 1973) was a prominent American tattoo artist, famous for his tattooing of sailors; he was also known as "Sailor Jerry".[1]
An annual event now takes place in Hawaii called the "Sailor Jerry Festival" and aims to honor Collins's global influence, his many achievements, and his local ties.
