Sailor Jerry tattoos refer to body art inspired by one of the famous tattoo artists of all time – Norman Keith Collins. Norman was born in 1911. He had a huge interest in body artwork. He was already inking temporary tattoos using markers and pens on his body before he was 10. By the age of 14, he had already learned how to ink tattoos using the hand pricking method.
Sailor Jerry tattoos can have multiple meanings which depend on the actual design. However, some common symbolisms are –
1. CLASSIC – A Sailor Jerry tattoo on your body will represent your love for the old classic era – An era where people had high moral values and less materialistic thinking.
2.SEDUCTION – Believe It or not but Sailor jerry’s tattoos are considered a sex symbol. Decades have passed but the opinion of women is still the same about Sailor Jerry tattoo designs.
3.ART-LOVER – Norman was a master of his art. He holds the same place among tattoo artists as Arnold Schwarzenegger holds among Bodybuilders (I am a Sly fan though J).
