Rockabilly Tattoos – Reviving the Art of Sailor Jerry

Vintage in style, today’s rockabilly tattoos are a combination of sailor tattoos and key elements of ’50s fashion. From the sailors came the anchors, sparrows, stars and pin-up girls, from the prime time of rockabilly music came the ’50s iconic cars, music symbols and ironic red hearts. Girls, cars, and musical symbols and instruments tended to dominate. Women, who were less likely to get tattoos, would wear necklaces with pendants with the same kind of artwork, along with sayings like ‘faith’ or ‘rock’, known as rockabilly tattoo necklaces.
