An OV reader got in touch to fill me in a little on JD-
“J.D. aka Mr. Tee is Legendary. He created Trash/18 wheeler Magazine. I have the majority of the Trash magazine issues there were 200 issues starting from the late 70’s early 80’s into the 2000’s. It’s like a trucker sex zine but often included stories of J.D. tattooing men on the road and sometimes trips to Sailor Sid’s. Sailor Sid is actually on the cover of two of the early issues.”

I don’t have much information on this video; it was shot sometime in the early/mid 1980s at Sailor Sid Diller’s Silver Anchor Tattoo Studio in South Florida. The VHS tape it was captured from was a compilation from Sid labeled 1986, but the footage could have been filmed before that. The artist is credited as J.D. Sid calls him John early on in the video and he mentions being from New Jersey) but otherwise it’s a mystery. If anyone knows more about J.D. please get in touch.
The video was filmed before wearing gloves was standard practice and is presented for archival purposes.
