Ink, Drink, & Tattoos- ‘Sailor Jerry’ Opens Hotel Street in London

The great Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins has hopped across the pond  bringing with him some of his bad ass masterpieces. The Iconic tattoo artist has decided to share his love of ink with his friends in the UK opening the gallery, store and music venue, Hotel Street, on Thursday, April 19th, 2012.

Displaying 75 his best of his original pieces, ‘Sailor Jerry’ strongly encourages his guests to relax and enjoy their time offering up some of his favourite spiced rum cocktails including Mules, Daiquiris, Vanilla Mojitos and an assortment of weekly specials.

Tattooing may be the thing that sets this independent spirit apart from the rest of this manic word, but let’s not forget that ‘Sailor Jerry’ is an artist of all sorts, embracing the importance of fashion, music and film. For the first time in the UK the ‘Sailor Jerry’ clothing and accessory line will be available for purchase at the Hotel Street location during the day, bringing with it distinctive design of graphic t-shirts, jackets, hoodies and belt buckles.

By night, this intrepid venue will welcome some of your most favourite hard rock and punk bands. Already scheduled acts include:
