*...formerly titled "Bro"

Dustin Golden from Deluxe Tattoo out of Chicago, IL comes back to Rock Town and into Nick's office to lay down some fuckin' awesome old school stories of back in the day in Alley Cat, runnin' shit with Nick and even farther back literally growing up in tattoo shops from early, early on.

Lots of laughing and great tales to be had in this hot one from two master bullshitters. Don't miss it.

Thanks to everyone buyin' the all of the shirts we've had brilliantly drawn up for us by some of our killer, kickass guests. And even if you haven't bought one: thanks for listening!

*...formerly titled "Labia"

Alright patient, loyal listeners: this is the final one with poor audio quality done in the hotel room at the convention. Apparently everything I tried to do to improve the sound while not hanging out in Nick's office backfired because it seems as though the audio on these hotel room recordings got worse and worse.

Please give it a try because Nick is talking with Mr. Jeremy Swed in this episode and they're also joined by the one and only Brian Bruno. It's a killer conversation and worth the strain on the ears.

I apologize for this, but these were all too good not to at least try and share. I consulted experts for this one, to no avail. There is a shiny, new Shop Talk at the end to sweeten the deal, so stick around for that and enjoy the bullshit.

*...formerly titled "Hometown"

First things first: I really don't know what is going on with the audio on this one. Nick sat down with Jeff Cribb shortly after talking to Scott Sterling and I'm not sure what changed, but the sound just came out weird here. I did all I could to improve things, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Jeff has a lot of kick ass things to say and the time flies by with Nick and him throwing around stories and ideas without pause. It's a truly great episode that I think will immerse you enough to ignore the imperfections.

Cribb is from Hero Tattoo in Conway, SC. So check him out. Also, enjoy yet another quality Shop Talk production. Yeah.

*...formerly titled "Right"

Wow! I barely had to edit this one since there's barely a pause to be had. Enjoy the return of tattoo industry legend Scott Sterling while Nick hangs out with him for a good hour and a half of non-stop bull shit!

There's a real quick Shop Talk, too! Enjoy you motherfuckers!!

*...formerly titled "Suit"

Great, great friend and bearer of a truly amazing body suit by some of the greats, Steve-O meets up with Nick in Rochester, NY where the Roc City Tattoo Convention is taking place as they record some memories.

The brotherhood is apparent and some crazy stories and tattoo discussion come out on this episode.

Stick around for another Shop Talk and enjoy!
