SAILOR JERRY TATTOO DRAWINGS
More works by the great Sailor Jerry from Hardy Marks Publications! To celebrate the centennial year of Jerry’s birth (1911) we’re digging into the archives of Jerry’s secret stash to present something different.
These are precision line drawings, some with light color—the final finished step before cutting stencils. Grouped in tracing paper pads from the late 1940s-early 1950s, with notations by Jerry. Hundreds of the images, many never seen before, that formed the paragon of mid-twentieth century tattooing.
Reproduced full size, 11 x 14, with an introduction by Ed Hardy.
