This is a brilliant documentary. Yes, I am also a tattoo artist, so I was delighted to find the Holy Grail of documentaries about the history of tattooing in America. I found it by linking to it from another excellent film from 1980, "Stoney Knows How"...about Stoney St. Claire, another historical figure of tattooing in this country. The narratives of Sailor Jerry's personally typed and VERY frank outlooks on life and people are hilarious, as is the daring use of the title theme, "Eff 'Em All". Appearances of notable figures of the industry offering their personal recollections are priceless (Don Ed Hardy, Eddie Funk, Mike Malone, Zeke Owens, Lyle Tuttle...all very famous and innovative artists). A fascinating look into the fascinating history of the most fascinating art form! Superb!
