bruce the sharkSailor Jerry Spiced Rum ran a promo this past Saturday in Chicago, New York, Ft. Lauderdale and New Orleans giving away 101 free tattoos in each city featuring the designs of Norman Collins, the legendary tattoo artist whose art the liquor brand uses for their bottle design and marketing campaigns.  In New Orleans, that meant heading into Uptown Tattoos with my friend and waiting out a lovely football afternoon playing Uno outside and drinkin’ rum til it was our turn to get some free ink (this town, it’s pretty great…).  I got a shark done in record time on my arm (filling up a blank space between a couple of other tattoos that’s been bugging me for awhile, so yay) and then set out to (attempt to) honor Sailor Jerry with some flash nail art — happy 101st birthday!  It’s all acrylic again, will get back to polish shortly, I promise… but huge thanks to Uptown Tattoos for the great work, and Sailor Jerry for the amazing promotion!

    I LOVE Sailor Jerry rum! Even if I only bought it for the bottle at first! Awesome nails, and awesome tat. That that’s awesome that they were giving away free ink! Sweet!

    This is why I love you! lol

    I had no idea you were tattooed! I feel like we should go drink some rum and discuss old nail polish war stories together or something! hahaha.
    But I love the shark you got, and I love your nail art!
    I would love to go to a convention like this! Traditional tattoos are my favorite style of tattooing.
    And Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is delicious.
    I’d love to see more of your tattoos!

    Awww thanks ladies! :-D Emily, you are welcome to come play with me in New Orleans anytime! Also, it sounds like they may run this kind of promo again in the future so like, follow the Sailor Jerry folks and stay tuned. And I’ll post more non-nail pics come Mardi Gras, don’t you worry… except for the incriminating ones.
