RMV Quick Critique: Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry (2008)

        Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry gives a brief history of the origins of tattooing in America, though the main focus of the film seems to be tattooed old men telling ridiculous stories about the good-old-days and tattoo legend Norman K. Collins. Collins simply went by Sailor Jerry, but he became one of the trailblazers in tattooing when he set up shop in Hawaii. The stories don’t always portray the tattoo legend as the kind of person that would have made a pleasant companion. His work, however, speaks for itself.
