Sailor Jerry house fly done by Chris Danly at Old Ironside Tattoo at 1033 Smith St in Chinatown, HI.
This tattoo was done in the same room Sailor Jerry tattooed in. Since I moved back here, the space at 1033 Smith Street has been locked up every time I walked by. You could look inside the porthole in the door and see the entire inside was painted black. Chris told me it took 5 coats until the black didn’t show through. The guy who had the space was a complete weirdo piercer dude that did some awful fucking tattoos and pretty much disgraced the space.
Chris used to work at the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum, moved to Hawaii and somehow acquired the space. I’m glad he did because it sounds like he’s planning to give it the respect it deserves.
As someone from Honolulu, this is a culturally significant event in my life for reasons a blog post won’t really capture. I’m stoked this happened before I left home to move back east.
SIBLINGS - JOB CREATOR
Vote for me, Vote for me
Pray for me, Pray for Me
buy from me, buy from me
But it’s not enough
Die for me, Die for me
Cry for me, cry for me
live for me and my reality
that i built up
you think that you have control
cause you own the media and police
if you think you own me
then the jokes on you
we are coming to tear down
the walls you built up
we are waking up
from the dream you sold us
