Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum & Harley-Davidson Art Contest

January 18, 2018 – Call it Hog Heaven.  Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and Harley-Davidson are teaming up again, this time with a first-of-its-kind design competition open to the public.  Dubbed the “My Works Speaks for Itself” contest, details on how to enter can be found at

The model selected for this competition is the 2018 Street Bob.  Six winners will be chosen by celebrity tattoo artist Megan Massacre, Spike TV’s “Ink Master” Star Oliver Peck, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum Ambassadors Ashley Marsh and Daniel “Gravy” Thomas and the Harley-Davidson design team.  Megan Wozniki aka Megan Massacre and Oliver Peck were members of the artistic team that decorated various Harley-Davidson models in 2017.  The national tour of the 22 bikes was hugely popular as was the fan sweepstakes for the bikes at the end of summer.

You must be 25 years or older to enter and reside legally in one of the 50 States or District of Columbia.  Read the rules here.

Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins is revered as the father of old-time tattoos.  Like Harley-Davidson, now in its 115th year, he is an American icon.  The competition runs through February 15, 2018 with winners being announced February 28 via Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum’s Facebook and Instagram feeds.

Get the creative juices flowing because being one of the six winners will be a lot of fun.  Here’s what the winners can look forward to:

Not only will contest winners’ artwork be seen on Harley-Davidson® motorcycles across the United States, they will also receive: 

  • An exclusive, behind-the-scenes VIP experience at the Harley-Davidson Museum, hosted by Megan Massacre and Oliver Peck.
  • Complimentary enrollment into the Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy to hone their riding skills and learn to ride a Harley® like the pros.
  • The opportunity to meet the Harley-Davidson Design Team painting the metal beasts with the winners’ sketches.

In exciting events taking place starting mid-April, these custom painted motorcycles will be unveiled and begin their tour across the nation. After Labor Day, each motorcycle will be awarded to lucky winners through a separate fan-driven sweepstakes, letting the artwork live on infinitely.

And if that’s not enough, listen to this:  Harley-Davidson and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum fans and winners of the “My Work Speaks for Itself” design contest are in for an action packed 2018. The custom Harley-Davidson® motorcycles and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum cocktails will be popping up for viewing and responsible tasting at events such as Fleet Week New York, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Daytona Bike Week and Laconia Motorcycle Week.
