A general word about the book: This collection, the second in a pair of Sailor Jerry tattoo stencil books, includes 80 pages of images drawn by the iconic tattoo artist Sailor Jerry. The images are copies of vintage tattoo flash, not photos or colored images, and many were drawn over half a century ago (I point that out since a number of reviewers of this and the previous volume complained about the quality of the images, as if the book was supposed to have glossy photos of Kat von D in it or something). Sailor Jerry was one of the people who formalized many of the images and styles inherited from the prior hundred and fifty years of Western tattooing. So he was instrumental in kickstarting modern American tattooing as we know it - his student Don Hardy (Jersey Shore t-shirt guy), who drew a great deal from him, is one of the most widely recognizable tattoo artists ever. So, while much of contemporary tattooing has moved away from certain aspects of his style, few artists can honestly say they've completely escaped his influence. If only for that reason, his work is an important frame of reference; but much of it has also resisted the changing tides of style, and many of his pieces look just as compelling today as they did in 1950.

More specific to this volume: Compared to the first book, this one isn't much help if you're looking for Sailor Jerry's most famous stuff (read: that stuff branded on shoes and rum bottles). But this volume is worth springing for if you're trying to see the less widely known side of SJ's work. It includes some of his strangest and most creative pieces, and the crude humor he's known for is in top form here.

My son specifically asked me to look for a Sailor Jerry book. I'm sending him this one for his birthday and I think he will really like it as he was in the Navy. It has tons of tattoo drawings by Sailor Jerry in it. Anyone who likes tattoos will be delighted with this book.

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.

This book is front to back line flash. It is full of some of the greatest tattoos of all time. I like that every page front and back are full of stencils. And all the pages are perforated so they can be taken out and used for the shops wall. Great buy....
