In order to keep bringing you the best and most interesting guests to the NLJBS show, Nick went up to Key City Tattoo in Frederick, MD to bullshit with the one and only Dave Waugh (well, one of two) and had a great old time that you're gonna love to hear about. Part kickass history lesson in tattooing and part nostalgia for the way things were and the way they were going right up until we all got this quarantine to deal with, this episode is a great one. There's a few other folks who chime in here and there to spice things up as well. Andrew & Porter return this week for another edition of your favorite celebration of fine work, Shop Talk. Enjoy.
It's still twenty-twenty. Lockdowns, masks, no travel, etc. What better time than now for Nick to just sit down with one of the legit main Alley Cat Tattoo crew? This time we've got Mr. Jake Hockman, several year veteran but still youngblood of Alley Cat, Jake has seen and done a ton o' shit since he began working in the 'Burg. You get to hear Nick walk him back through these last several killer years as well as what led up to him takin' a station in Rocktown. It's a non-stop super comfortable good time of a storytellin' session. And while there's not a regular Shop Talk on this one, you're gonna get to hear about a ton of tattooers and even more killer tats as they break down a bunch of their own and others, so you're not missin' out. Andrew and Porter will return soon. Enjoy!
Good friend of the show and everyone at Alley Cat Tattoo, Blake Cramer - better known as the infamous Troutmouth - drops on by the outside walls of the studio fortress of No Lies Just Bullshit and legendary sensation, Nick Swartz, for a socially distanced, whiskey-soaked quarantine hang where lots of bullshit stories and downhome cover songs are laid down into immortal internet wax for all you bullshitters waitin' things out on the home front. And to top it all off with an old school cherry we got a sweet, sweet segment known to all you veterans of the show as Shop Talk. Tune in as Porter & Andrew join our heroic host to bring to you all the good shit you should be lookin' at.
It's been a while, but the one and only Sam Berenstain (yes THAT Berenstain) returns to the show once again to chill with Nick and talk about all kinds o' things. You recognize his family name for sure and that does come up, but there's also a lotta serious tat talk and some very interesting discussion about Sam's job farming. Some skills that might come in handy as the world crumbles before our very eyes.
Shop Talk follows up with some great tattoo discussion with Andrew and Porter joining in too. Hell yeah.
