From rum to nautical inspired clothing, tattoos to brilliant artwork, social events and more Sailor Jerry Australia is one of the best and hardest working companies in Australia.
I've loved the flash art of SJ for years and have many of these images inked on my skin. I was first introduced to Sailor Jerry a few years back at a burlesque/tattoo night and this is where my addiction started. My dear friend Pete Pav of Mans Ruin Tattoo gave me my first SJ ink work and from that point I've never looked back.
I'm absolutely smitten with every form of merch from this company and it fits into my pinup wardrobe with ease! I've shot two of my favourite tops from their current range but be sure to look out for the full selection at Australian based kustom culture events.
I'm wearing their tanks and tees in size M and they fit like a dream due to the super stretchy fabric.. As you know I'm a huge fan of anchors and sailor styled pinup wear so this red and cream tank top is perfect for my summer wardrobe!
My second item is another of the SJ flash of a tiger and Death or Glory text. At first I was worried this would not fit in medium but it hugs my curves and works on my bust. While I usually don't like such pale colours I think these work brilliantly with plain black high waists or jeans and look fantastic with red or navy cardigans.
I'm also wearing the MUST have item from SJ which is a dogtag like necklace that also doubles as a bottle opener! Funky accessories that also provide a useful function win me over each and every time. Now these are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the amazing merchandise and accessories you can purchase from Sailor Jerry Australia.
I currently only have 4 SJ tattoos but I've got heaps of space free and many years of tattoo time to enjoy!
So be sure to find their Facebook page, follow all news and updates and come along to any of the events they advertise! You'll find these and many more tees and tanks, I'm lusting after some more anchor style tops from their collection.
So look out for the SJ Airstream which pops up at each event, this retrotastic caravan has my heart! Many thanks to Robin Elk for shooting this rocking tops with me. Can't wait to spook it up with you next!
