This past Labor Day was the 2015 Carriage House Tattoo Gathering in Lenoir, NC. This was the inaugural event that attracted top tattoo artists from all over the world. The event organizers were Big Gus, Tony Olivas, and Chris Holifield. The master of ceremonies was none other than Joe Germinario, aka Joey Tattoo from Spike TV’s hit series Tattoo Rescue. We would like to thank all involved for the opportunity to cover this event and all the hospitality.

Our friends at Pinups for Pitbulls are now accepting pre-orders for their 2014 Calendar featuring good looking Pinup models and of course Pitbulls. If you don’t know what Pinups for Pitbulls are all about – no worries. This is an excerpt from their website’s About Us page:
Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. (PFPB) was founded in 2005 by Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin. Deirdre was tired of finding that so-called rescues and shelters were euthanizing healthy, friendly, and adoptable animals due to their alleged “breed”, and so she utilized her background in modeling and education in fine arts to create a calendar like no other–eye-catching pinup girls and their pups, paying close attention to detail and era appropriate style along the way.
Since 2005, PFPB has continued its progress and has grown exponentially into the internationally recognized organization it is today. Deirdre’s initial vision and mission has remained intact, however her passion for animals and her ability to capture an audience has enabled PFPB to reach people across the world.
PFPB is a certified 501c3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to educate people about the history, temperament, and plight of the pit bull-type dog; raising awareness to rally against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and Breed Discriminatory Laws (BDL). PFPB’s goal is to restore the image of the pit bull-type dog to its former reputation of America’s companion animal, war hero, and family member.
