Last weekend we headed up to Aspen for the X Games. Preston tattooed out of the pop-up tattoo shop, Hold Fast Tattoo, at the Sky Hotel, hosted by Sailor Jerry Rum. The clients, who included artists, musicians, athletes and supporters of Sailor Jerry Rum, received classic pieces of Sailor Jerry flash.
Sailor Jerry Rum also hosted the unofficial X Games kickoff party at the Sky Hotel that you can read more about here.
We met so many great people and got to hang out with some old acquaintances. We had a little time to explore the town of Aspen and we were lucky enough to catch Shaun White bust out the 100 point perfect run in the SuperPipe. It was pretty awesome! Not so awesome was watching Justin Hoyer break his arm attempting a double backflip on the snowmobile. It was pretty much awful!
Thanks to everyone who made this experience possible!

Saturday, January 14th 2012 marked the 101st birthday of Sailor Jerry. To commemorate the occasion, Preston paired up with Joe from Sailor Jerry Rum to knock out some classic SJ flash. The lucky recipients included many local bartenders to show appreciation for their continued support of Sailor Jerry Rum.
It was a long day, 14 hours long to be exact, with lots of people, flash, laughs, coffee, pizza and much frustration whilst trying to find a signal so everyone could catch the Broncos vs. Patriots game (sad face) in the evening.
We’re grateful to be a part of this occasion and look forward to working with Sailor Jerry Rum again as we head to Aspen in a couple of weeks to tattoo out of the Sailor Jerry Airstream at the X Games.

Here are a selection of the tattoos Preston did that day. We’ll put more up as we get them – it’s quite possible we used 4 of our own cameras on that day, plus whatever everyone else used so there are a lot of sources to get through!
