Description

Product Description

American tattoo master Sailor Jerry Collins of Hawaii is best known for his remarkable tattoo designs, blending the fluidity of Asian motifs into classic American tattoo imagery. Until now, most of Sailor Jerry''s work has been controlled by a handful of collectors, seen only at museum or art gallery exhibitions or in short-run, self-published books. Here is a sizeable portion of Sailor Jerry''s stencils, the newest tattoo collectible, spanning his tattoo career, from the 1940s to the early 1970s. The basic line work of hundreds of his staple and surprisingly beautiful designs--pin-ups, roses, bluebirds, hearts, and banners, and Jerry''s infamous military/political cartoons. The stencils themselves were handcut in celluloid, vinyl or acetate sheets by the master himself for use during his day-to-day thriving tattoo trade in downtown Honolulu. They are, in the best sense, permanent tattoos carved in plastic, enduring through time. In their original condition, most carry residual charcoal dust from their last use. All are signed by Jerry with one of his several distinctive signatures. This is the only book of its kind--a workbook for artists, and a design catalog for folk art historians. The value of the stencils is included, along with descriptions of stencils and their usage and a glossary of tattoo terminology.

About the Author

Kate Hellenbrand is an award-winning tattoo artist and writer. She began tattooing in 1971 in New York City, where she lives today. She worked with Sailor Jerry in his Honolulu shop in 1972 and remained his friend until his death in 1973.

I saw some reviews complaining about this book but I found it to be pretty awesome, it was exactly what I expected. Lots of stencils for Sailor Jerry flash. I wasn''t looking for a coffee table book which is maybe why those people were disappointed. I wanted an american traditional tattoo stencil book and this one nailed it.

If you''re looking for a Sailor Jerry book with bright colorful pictures and descriptions, this isn''t the one. But if you just want a nice collection of his black and white stencils I''d say go for it, I''m definitely happy with it.

It''s exactly what it says it is. A bunch of stencils of traditional type tattoos. I''m not much of an artist so I plan to use this in my planner by tracing into there with some graphite paper. I did some experimenting with that so far but I used tracing paper and then carbon paper. I don''t know. If you ever have been in a tattoo shop the stencil form and the pictures themselves will be super familiar. I agree it would be nice to have some color guides but realistically there are a ton of pictures of his flash online that you can reference when you really need to and there''s really only so many colors that were used at that time. This wouldn''t be a book for someone who is interested in history of tattoo or generalized tattoo art unless you''re actively doing tattoo. It won''t serve much purpose then. The pictures are at times repetitive. It makes me wonder what is in the second book honestly.

Very disappointed.
Reviewed in the United States on June 28, 2021
Not at all what I was looking for in a tattoo book. The drawings are the sketches Jerry based his work on (very rough). The sizing choices for the drawings is very odd....some are tiny and some are huge. I''m returning this, since it was also very overpriced.

Well, when I think of the most well known SJ tattoos... they aren’t in this book. No Aloha monkey. No hula girl from the bottle. Hell, there are stencils in the cover, that aren’t in the book!

An important book for your library, but could use some color references...
Reviewed in the United States on February 28, 2018
Really great book filled with stencils. The only thing I think would make it better is the addition of colored versions for reference. The line drawings certainly save time and make it easy, but reference is also important.

If you love this style you’ll love this book. Husband enjoyed just looking at it. He did some sketches and came out great. I just like having this in my book collection.

When I started tattooing over 30 years ago almost everybody was tattooing Sailor Jerry, or at least Sailor Jerry inspired designs. I came into the tattoo trade tattooing these designs and now after more than three decades of being a slave to changing fads and fashions I have decided that when God decides it''s time for me to leave I want to go out tattooing sailor Jerry designs! So I bought this book with the intention of redrawing the designs in the book,adding my own twist and then tattooing them on my huge client base of loyal customers. The book didn''t disappoint, it is exactly what it says on the tin, a collection of stencils,so don''t buy it expecting well presented flash. I think it''s important to preserve our great tattoo heritage and this book makes a valuable contribution and stands out as a treasure in my collection.

classic Flash and a little bit of back story

Classic Flash, very enjoyable to look at and learn from. Carries its own historical content and worth having for any shop or collector, especially if you can''t afford originals. Good quality book and delivery also.
