If you know who Shawn Kerri is , then you might recognize her style
She was living in PB at the time I had this done . She was the one who basically created the skanking man for the Circle Jerks . In the 70's she was one of the main artists for the magazine " Cartoons" as well as a bunch of other mags that featured muscle cars and customs .
I don't know the details of her life at the time but she was pretty big in the punk scene as well drawing flyers and cartoon art for bands and the like .
I met her one day while she was wandering around the beach and recognized her from some tattoos she had . We started talking and she said that she had old original art she was liquidating due to not working for a while or something . I instantly bought a few pieces and asked her if she did requests . . . yep she did . I had her do a few and then it struck me , have her paint me , tattooing on the circle jerks guy . Sweet idea , and even sweeter end result .
That's me tattooing the circle jerks guy , talking shit about punk rock and stuff as if we're tight bros . . .
