Josh Swartz, brother of Nick, co-conspirator in all things Alley Cat Tattoo, NLJBS & Flying Panther, heads up I-81 to join the crew in the studio for a long overdue visit to chat and update y'all on things. The past several hundred episodes are discussed, as well as plans for the future, then Josh tells a tale that Nick has been trying to get him to talk about for a while. It's mostly a story about the army and not feelin' like you fit in, but then some serious shit goes down that sticks in the memory. It's a wild ride with a few other stories thrown in here and there. We hope you'll enjoy.
Shop Talk wraps it up as Porter & Andrew join up to talk about only the sickest latest tats. Hell yeah.
Travel is limited, conventions are cancelled and random meetings are discouraged. Yeah, quarantine is still in effect. So what do we do when want to record a killer episode of No Lies Just Bullshit? Well, we turn to the amazing artists working with us. Andrew Conner is one of the best in the world and just happens to work next door. You know him from Shop Talk and a bunch of other episodes. Jake Hockman is a several year veteran of Alley Cat Tattoo while still being the newest member of the family. Knockin' out killer tats here in the valley, Jake jumps in for the majority of this episode and the boys all have a great time hanging with Nick. Porter shows up in the Shop Talk slot. You're gonna love it!
Nick, Porter & Jake have a good long conversation with Ian from Absolute Art Tattoo in Richmond, VA. Ian was in the friendly city of Harrisonburg recently doing a guest spot at Alley Cat Tattoo and the boys all hang out and talk tattoos and whatever else comes up on this killer episode of your favorite podcast. Andrew will return down the road as well for some new Shop Talks, but there's plenty of talk here to keep you satisfied. Enjoy.
We got ourselves a talker! While we're still all dealin' with a pandemic in our great nation and it's kinda weird tryin' to figure out how to reach out to more tattooers, etc. Nick has had to come up with some interesting cats closer to home these days. Well we got one for ya! This is Nick's old pal "Gibby" Gibson and you'll learn all about him, the way he and Nick got acquainted and all kinds of other interestin' facts that you didn't know you wanted to know. There's plenty of pleasant tunes spread throughout and just a good ol' long bullshit session. Stay tuned for the Shop Talk you know and love with Andrew and Porter joinin' on in. Heck yeah.
This episode kicks off with a wild story relating to embalming and goes all over the place after that. It's a third visit for great friend of the show and Alley Cat, Mary Jane. If you haven't heard her other episodes, we recommend that you go check them out. If not, then enjoy your introduction to some very interesting story telling and back and forth with Nick. Shop Talk takes us home with Porter and Andrew and a bunch of killer tattoos. Good times.
