So truth be told, I (and we) never set out to create the ‘The biggest tattoo flash in the world’ - and if the first wall we had planned didn’t fall through in the days leading up to NZ Tattoo Festival …or if Brent and Sailor Jerry Rum didn’t have my back and if the local New Plymouth council or business’ let me take on the whole damn wall last minute …then it would then have only been a portion of the size - and no where near as special to me.

We got it done in 5 days and couldn’t be more proud of it. This said, I want to shoutout local artist Odjobs for coming in on such short notice and working with me through the cold and rain to get it done on time.

RIP Sailor Jerry.
