Iain O Nuallain is the new artist for Absolute Art Tattoo in Richmond. All friends of the show, if you've been listening for any time at all to NLJBS, you know how much Absolute Art means to Nick and to VA and tattooing in general. When Dave hit the road and Iain stepped in, you knew Nick would eventually sit down with him, and here it is! This is a crazy episode filled with some wild stories from a super interesting dude. Check it out.
Shop Talk is back! Porter and Andrew return to discuss some of the best recent tattoos with Nick. Enjoy.
While in town to check out the Shane Inholm show a while back, Nate Harmon and his buddy stop by to hang out with Nick and tell some stories about tattooin' and music and a crazy life in and out of shops. It's a wild one and a great time so be sure and check it out.
There is no Shop Talk this week. Nick & Sara took off to Florida and the crew has been holdin' it down and keepin' things busy. Andrew and Porter will return next week to talk about some more sweet tats!
Nick and Trevor hit the road a while back down to North Carolina to the event held by the Tattoo Historical Society and while they were there, Nick got the chance to sit down with Andreas Coenen who came all the way from The Sinner & The Saint tattoo studio in Aachen, Germany to attend the event. There's a lot of interesting comparison to shops over in Deutschland and how things are done, as well as some great discussion about the books that Andreas has been publishing over the years. It's an all-around interesting discussion with a great tattoo artist from overseas that you don't often get a chance to hear about over here.
Andrew had to sit out of this week's Shop Talk, but the mighty John Glesner joins in the discussion with Nick and Porter and lots of good fun is had as they tell you about some killer tattoos.
