Theme Thursday: Sailor Jerry Wedding

Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins went around the world for nearly a decade courtesy of the Navy after a nomadic life of freight train hopping where he learned the basics of the tattooing . In his time at sea, he grew to love naval culture and the tattoos that often went hand in hand with the sailor aesthetic. Settling in Hawaii and setting up shop in Honolulu where he tattooed thousands of sailor and taught the trade to apprentice, Ed Hardy.

The “Sailor Jerry” aesthetic is one of defined lines, bright colors, and bold designs. Today’s Theme Thursday is for the couple that embraces the “Sailor Jerry” look and lifestyle. It’s been a fun one to put together and I hope you enjoy it.
