Mike Rubendall, owner of Kings Ave. Tattoo in New York talks with Nick about Everence - a method of encapsulating DNA in the form of a powder that can then be mixed into tattoo inks. He's joined by Tim Hendricks and Scott Sylvia who are both out in California to discuss the project as well.
As usual for Nick, they discuss quite a few other things as they bullshit, so don't worry about that. Also, these dudes aren't chilling at Alley Cat with Nick, either. They're in three different cities, so this all had to be organized over the internet. Some audio issues occur, but Nick explains all that in the intro. It's worth overlooking to hear what these legends all have to say.
This episode contains some important information, so Shop Talk takes a break this week. So if you're new to the show, be sure and keep listening so you don't miss out. Alright, enjoy everybody!
Living in Harrisonburg and working at Alley Cat has led to the creation of some great, lasting friendships with a lot of cool people over the years. This is the story of one of them.
All the way from sunny (and smoky) California where he runs the show at his restaurant Cueva Bar comes Nicks old friend from the 'Burg, Oz the Chef.
Listen as Oz talks about the trials and tribulations of his life in America and how they led not only to eventually becoming great friends with Nick, but also finding his beautiful wife and becoming a chef. A great time, for sure.
Stick around for more of Andrew Conner and Chris Porter as they bullshit with Nick about another week of great tattoos on Shop Talk. Hell yeah!
On our recent VA Beach trip, Nick got to meet and sit down with Annette LaRue and Steve Tiberi from Electromagnetic Tattoo in Chesapeake, VA.
This episode kicks ass right out of the gate, so you definitely don't want to miss it as we finally get a woman's perspective of doing tattoos and dealin' with all that comes with it. It's not what you'd expect and so much more.
Keep up the crazy with your favorite Shop Talkers, too!
We got Tony Riccio back on the show! The third show from the VA Beach trip and it's a great one. Nick and Tony talk about the history of some of the shops in the VA Beach area and discuss Tony's new shop: Saltwater Tattoo and his killer crew.
As always, we finish things up with a Shop Talk featuring Nick, Porter, and Andrew... and just a lil' bit of Richie. Check it out!
