Back in the city again, Nick got the opportunity to record the room at King's Ave in New York for the release of the new book by Tribal Publishing called "In the Shadows" about the history of underground NY tattooing and all of the people and stories around it. Hosted by Patrick Kitzel of Tribal, this event was attended by a who's who of the tattoo world. Nick was able to record a few guests before capturing the speakers who talked about some of what went into the creation of the book. Clayton Knowles was the man who put it all together and you get to hear some of his thoughts, as well as Mehi Bakaty who has done some amazing work documenting tattoo history. It's a great one with some crazy sounds in the background, but worth the listen. Plus, there's a Shop Talk with Porter & Andrew and you can never go wrong hangin' with the boys.
All the way from Petaluma Tattoo in California near San Francisco, Mr. Nick Rodin stops by Alley Cat Tattoo to hang out and record an episode with Nick. It's a lot of fun to hear all the stories between these two.
