Watch The Trailer For The New Doc On Legendary Tattoo Artist Crazy Philadelphia Eddie

Born in 1936 under the perhaps even more badass name of Edward Funk, Crazy Philadelphia Eddie is a legend in the tattoo world. Though not as well-known as other tattoo figures like Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins or Ed Hardy, that could be changing soon, as Olde Bar proprietor/curator/documentary filmmaker Erich Weiss is underway with his forthcoming doc, Crazy Philadelphia Eddie. According to Weiss — who also directed Hori Smoku, about the aforementioned Collins — Crazy is driven directly by interviews with its namesake, but takes a different, more thoughtful approach than your average talking-head isn't-he-a-legend piece. "When the fringes become the fabric of mass pop culture, what happens to the original outsiders," asks the pitch. "Do pirates ever really retire?"
