Dave Navarro and Johnny Depp had a love child. Not being mean, just pointing out one handsome guy. BTW tell me I'm wrong from this picture.

Johnny Araujo you should register for this event and you and Suzanne can come up and visit. We would love to have you come stay with us Pat Araujo Enriquez. We are a blast to hang out with....just ask Estela Aceves!!!

Ellen Duvall and Kiara Holland we have to go this year. I want a tattoo by Gus

I like that show, because they focus on the art (and the stories) instead of only being concerned with unnecessary drama (like "Ink Master")

I got 2 he can cover or remaster, lol

This show keeps getting better and better

Congrats. Well deserved!

Awesome!!!

Yay

That's rad I know some artists who still want nothing to do with color and everything to do with what I remember as " fine line " ink

Craig Artice Beth Artice you's down to go??
