Sailor Jerry Event on The Philadelphia City Paper's The Clog

Would you get a tattoo if it were free?

Because this weekend, they're gonna be.

As part of some crazy promotion/out of the goodness of their ink-crazed hearts, Sailor Jerry (116-118 S. 13th St., 215-531-6380‎) is holding two free events this Friday and Sunday: a show by the A.K.A.s before they leave for the Vans Warped Tour, and a free-of-charge tattoo day at Philadelphia Eddie's Tattoo (904 Arch St., 215-440-9997).

I don't have any tattoos, and the reason being is that every time I look back on who I was a year ago, I think, "What a fool … I definitely wouldn't trust that person to get a tattoo I'd like for the rest of my life." But this free business is pretty tempting. Are any of you tattoo virgins going to do the deed this weekend?

UPDATE: There is a catch — the tattoo has to be of the band's logo. That's kinda lame … but still, it's free, so kinda cool. More info the band's MySpace.

Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry Trailer

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.
