It's been a while since Porter got his own episode. He's been too busy hustlin' since the reopening of Alley Cat. But when times are rough and not too many folks are travelin' - you turn to the people who are close and you can count on. And that's Chris Porter in a nutshell. Great dude, excellent tatter, awesome friend. And if you don't already know some of those things, you're fuckin' up - get back in those archives and check out some of his early episodes. Doing great tattoos for years and helping flesh out the podcast by joining Nick and Andrew every week for Shop Talk, you are definitely going to get a kick out of this hang with him and your dedicated host, Nick Swartz.
Shop Talk finishes it off and you get to hear about more amazing tattoos. Enjoy!
Yoni Silber returns to the podcast with this hangout and quick recounting of two wild stories from his tattoo past. He sent them in back when we were doing the short stories episodes and now we finally get to squeeze him in with a good time hangout with our very own Andrew Conner. He tells Nick a great travelin' story. Shop Talk wraps things up for this one with Mr. Porter joinin' the boys to talk about some great tattoos. Enjoy.
Josh Brown from James River Tattoo in Lynchburg and George Archer from Tantrum Tattoo in Petersburg sit down with Nick and bullshit for the two hundredth. It has been a long and crazy ride, which Nick details in the intro. The episode ends somewhat abruptly, but it's a long one that you are all gonna love.
Andrew and Porter come through with a Shop Talk once again while Nick gets out there in the field to keep bringin' these to ya.
Nick visits VA Beach with his family every year, but he also hangs out other times as well and has many friends in the area. Tony Riccio from Saltwater Tattoo and Igor the sign painter have been on the show. Well, Jeremy is friends with these guys and has some great stories to tell about his business, True Love Neon, and how he got in that game. Also great friends with all the guys at Absolute Art in Richmond, he recently installed some of the sickest neon waves you'll ever see for them for their recent move into a new space. There's a ton of stories to be heard, and then stick around as Porter & Andrew bring us a killer Shop Talk without Nick. Let's hear it for the guys.
