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.

As soon as we hit the convention floor we were met with the sound of buzzing tattoo machines and the smell of green soap.

On Sunday some lucky tattoo collector won a tattoo collaboration with Paul Booth and Nikko Hurtado – what a lucky guy!
