Legendary tattoo artist Norman Keith Collins
, otherwise known as Sailor Jerry
, was born in Reno, Nevada on January 14, 1911. Though he went to the great tattoo parlour in the sky in 1973, Utility Gallery
(6070 Quinpool Road, 420-1348) is recognizing Collins’ centenary and influential work with a special day of discounts on tattoos based on designs “by the master himself.” You’ll find a selection of Sailor Jerry ink to choose from with appointments on a first come, first serve basis. The studio hours for the day will be noon to 8pm. And for those not ink-inclined, maybe have a sip of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum to celebrate.
