One thought on “Sailor Jerry’s Birthday To Be Commemorated With Free Tattoos

  1. I couldn’t even read this dribble. What professional tattoo artist believes in free tattoos? The Sailor Jerry Rum Co. is not a professional tattoo artist or the prodigy of Sailor Jerry. If cheap tattoos are not good etc., what does that say about free tattoos. Lyle said free tattoos will fuck you up, good tattoos are like good therapy and cost good money. “if I were you I’d send that guy some money and a letter of apology”.
