Before tramp stamps, barbwire armbands, and tribal whatevers, tattoos were actually a subculture–a relatively low-profile underground phenomenon that only gained steam several decades ago. One guy in particular helped advance the art of the tattoo (both literally and figuratively) onto a higher plane. Sailor Jerry, a salt of the earth son of a bitch who actually was a sailor, was a legendary tattoo artist who inked some of the most iconic pieces of artwork in the genre. As colorful a character as his tattoos, Sailor Jerry went far and wide to hone his craft and pick up influences from different cultures. Some of the people interviewed look like the craziest motherfuckers alive too.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
