A national travelling art, music and tattoo exhibition is coming to North Wollongong Hotel on August 15.
Showcasing the flash tattoo artist Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins’ original artwork, the event will see live tattooing from Thirroul tattooist Wayne Cartwright.
Illawarra bands The Owls and The Pinheads will also perform during the event running 6-10pm.
Collins’, the figurehead of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, designs created a whole new genre of style in the tattoo industry, combining Japanese sensibilities with iconic American imagery.
Popular motifs he coined are the very iconic pin-up girls, snakes, dice and swallows.
