Sailor Jerry “Homeward Bound” Book


This year marks the 100th birthday of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, the father of the old-school tattoo. Here are some images from Homeward Bound: The Life & Times of Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry, a limited-edition hardbound book featuring 128 pages of previously unseen photos and essays. It is a nice mix of American tattoo history (featuring work by Nick Schonberger) and WWII era fun loving sailor tales in Hawaii.
