Jason Hobbie returns after a million years ago having done an episode of NLJBS. In that legendary first one, the discussion focused a lot on his time coming up in Roanoke, VA and then several other shops, but stopped just short of opening Absolute Art in Richmond. So does this one pick up the timeline there? NO! We're livin' in the now on this one and hanging out with the crew of Jason's other shop: Classic Tattoo. We've got with us Charlie Jones, Zach Hendrickson and Rylee Jennings to talk about all things tattooing in Richmond and a peek behind the curtain of the elusive wizard of Richmond tattooing that is Jason Hobbie. Nick keeps it moving and starts us off with a killer intro talking about the 20th Anniversary of the home of No Lies Just Bullshit, Alley Cat Tattoo in Harrisonburg, VA. Hell. Yes.
Back in the early days of the podcast, we were honored to have sat down for a while with one of the old school tattooers down in Richmond. Frank Mills, rest in peace, had us over at his place to hang out and see some old stuff and hear some old tales. Mr. David Boysno and the one and only George Archer joined us in this discussion. You'll hear all about how this happened and some of the unusual things you can expect when you sit down to listen to this, but just know that this was back when we first started the show. We had no idea yet what we were doing, and our equipment spoke to that fact. And in addition to everything you'll hear Nick say about what went on back then, the file also inexplicably cuts off right in the middle of a good Frank story. So this is it, finally repaired and though it's not much and it's not complete, it's a piece of tattoo history that we hope you'll all enjoy.
The boys are back at it again in Clifton Forge. Nick was in the town he grew up in again for a family trip and though he was just on here, Dewayne returns to No Lies Just Bullshit for even more shenanigans. This time the Boar's Nest is fully operational and the guys waste no time filling it with cigar smoke, bourbon-fueled tales and brotherly bullshit. I won't waste any more of your time. If you heard him on here a few weeks ago, you're gonna wanna jump on in to this episode with Dewayne and Nick. Enjoy.
It's that time of year for the busiest tattooer on the East Coast to take a little vacation with his wife and child, so when Mr. Chris Porter hits the surf and sand, he gets excellent tattooers to fill in for him. This week you get to hear from one of these gentlemen: Jason McGarry to be exact, comin' at ya all the way from Three Rivers Tattoo in Pittsburg, PA. Alley Cat's very own Richie Stutler and Jake Hockman join Nick in the conversation with Jason and everyone involved tells some great stories and deep thoughts on the tattoo industry and how killer it is that we're all where we are today. Richie and Jason worked together in the past, so you'll hear some fun insider bullshit on this one, folks. Enjoy.
Foster is a legend down in Roanoke, VA where Nick used to live and they've been friends for a good, long time. He's played in a bunch of different bands and some of them were with Brian Gray, who used to tattoo at Alley Cat. Well, Nick and Foster get into all kinds of good stories about music and partyin' and all the things you love to listen to on this show. He even throws down a few tunes on here and they're great. Right now you can catch Foster around Roanoke and branching out to some other places with his bands The Mad Iguanas, Gote, the Isaac Hadden Project and Dead Reckoning. Always a good show and always a good time.
