There’s a magical tour hitting the road, fuelled by custom bikes, tattoo art, bands and of course delicious booze. Sailor Jerry are making their way down the east coast of Australia and you’d be a fool to miss out. Here’s their Origins of Original tour!
To help celebrate the legacy of tattoo great Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins, Sailor Jerry Australia have embarked on a whirlwind tour that kicked off in Brisbane 10th August at Ellaspede. Some of Norman Collins original artwork that has forged an iconic place in tattoo history will be showcased at each event. This is a rare opportunity for tattoo aficionados to get a look at some remarkable pieces that won’t often be shared.
You can’t have an event celebrating tattoos without tattoo artists being present. Each event will have a tattooist on hand to help punters get inky. We checked out the Sydney event, which was housed at the famous Gasoline Motor Co. location in Alexandria. The space alone is worth a check out, being filled with a ton of amazing custom and unique machines. Sailor Jerry was present now however and the place was about to be kicked up a notch.
With a never-ending supply of delicious drinks being supplied, everyone was in terrific spirits (there’s a pun in there somewhere) with plenty to enjoy. Newcastle band The Owls were atop a flatbed truck belting out some killer rock for the crowd. This 5-piece group was the perfect compliment for the setting, and if you see their name on the bill in your town you better bloody go see them. You won’t be disappointed, and your ears will love for you it. Sydney local legend Tommy J was on hand belting out some trims for those in need of looking a little sharper.
The tour isn’t over, so if you’re in one of the following cities pull your thumb our and enjoy the magic!
