Oliver Peck’s annual tattoo feats on Friday the 13th are already the stuff of legend and record (he’s literally in the Guinness book for it). But this year marks the start of a huge development for the event: It will now be a tattoo AND music festival, and Reverend Horton Heat will co-present alongside Peck. The festival goes from Friday, September 13 to Sunday, September 15, and tickets are on sale now. They’re $20 for a one-day pass, $40 for a weekend pass or $100 for VIP, which includes access to a “private club” on Elm Street.

Lucero Talks to Jimmy Perlman About the Joys and Pains of Touring and Tattoos

Jimmy Perlman: At about what age did you realize that you wanted tattoos? And what was the impetus?

Ben Nichols: I was in high school. Turned 18 and went down to a crusty old biker’s tattoo shop on Asher Ave. in Little Rock, AR and picked some flash off the wall. That tattoo is now 19 years old and holding up fine… for better or worse.

Brain Venable: I never really did know for sure, Steve Lovett the singer for Raid “convinced” me to pawn my stereo and get the judge hammers with “stomp crew” around them when I was 18, after that I was hooked…

Fresno Tattoo Convention: On the Road in California

By John

This post will be much like the Fresno convention, short and sweet! The Fresno convention is one of those rare two-day  shows that has all the talent and pageantry of a three-day convention, without the Friday blues that many of us are accustomed to.  There are very few shows where you don’t hear at least one person say, “Friday was slow… I’ll kill it on Saturday.” So Fresno just cuts out the Friday complaints and gets right to it on Saturday… [Video on expanded page] (more…)


West Texas Tattoo Convention: On the Road from San Angelo, Texas

By John

After a week-long stay in Austin, Texas (ATX) following the Star of Texas Convention, I jumped in a cargo van and drove out to the West Texas Tattoo Convention in San Angelo.

It turned out that a few people from the ATX show also made the scary journey through the west Texas dessert, including Richard Stell, Rock of Ages, Austin Tattoo Co., Electric 13 Tattoo and Triple Crown Tattoo. I’m sure there were others and I apologize for not mentioning you here. (more…)
