Nick and Josh took a road trip from VA down to FL and the first stop on those travels was Charlotte, NC where Nick sat down with Chris Stewart and several of the other artists who make up Made To Last Tattoo. Located in a beautiful old building downtown, MTL is an amazing shop with a great history and you get to hear all about it on this episode as well as plenty of great old tattooing tales. All of the gentlemen at Made To Last are fun and interesting, so don't miss this one. Thanks for listening.
Having traveled to Richmond to record with Katie last week, Nick stops by the renowned High Point Barber Shop to talk with one of the owners, David Foster. Having only met in passing prior to this, Nick and Foster hit it off like old friends and when you hear the conversation you'll know why. High Point is not your average barber shop. It's more like going to a tattoo shop and working with artists because, well - you are. They keep tattoo flash on the walls and you'll definitely see plenty of tattoos on the barbers themselves by Brian Bruno and other tattoo legends. It's just a great episode all around and you won't be disappointed with the comraderie evident throughout it and the stories that get told. Sit down, relax and enjoy the cut.
Nick hit the road again to record a few episodes for all you bullshitters and kicks things off with a great conversation with Katie Davis of Salvation Tattoo Gallery in Richmond, VA. Katie's man, Fred Pinckard, was just at the Alley Cat Tattoo 20th Anniversary celebration and not only attended, but his company Alliance Tattoo Supply provided supplies for a gathering of some of the best tattoo artists in the world that weekend. When Fred and Nick talked about some of the amazing work Katie has going on, he knew he had to sit down with her. Katie is presenting an amazing show where local Richmond artists provided ceramic pieces that tattooers then painted on before they were glazed and fired. It sounds like an amazing show, just like this one. The Shop Talks aren't back yet, but hang in there with us and enjoy the talk.
Chris Porter - Master P - Chrissy Big Tats is back on the show and kickin' it live with Nick to bring you the deep discussions and flavorful retellings that you are here for. Yes, it has been a week or two since the big Alley Cat Tattoo Twentieth Anniversary event and you're gonna get some great insight into that celebration from the front lines and behind the scenes. We all had a great time, but these two will hit you with some of the intensity and emotionality of the seriousness of how amazing the weekend really was from all perspectives.
That's most of what's going on here and you don't want to miss a minute of it. We're all still recovering from things, so there's still no Shop Talk attached to this episode, but hang in all the way until the end of this one for an inebriated, but celebrated announcement from the tat duo, the brothers of bullshit, the tattoo boy wonder and industry johnny carson themselves after killing an innocent bottle in front of us all. You're gonna wanna hear it. Have fun. Take care.
