    Eddie was willing to explore new areas to open a shop. Some of them made a mint, some of the shops struggled.

Squirrel Wrangler ,

Great taste of the past

Gotta love stories you hear from people who have been there. I’ve always said I love when old dudes start telling me stories at work. This feels just like that.

Buddytattoo ,

Great look into the golden era of tattooing.

I’ve read the paper version of Eddie’s books but there is nothing like hearing them in his voice. This podcast gives a glimpse into what tattooing was like back in the good old days. Well worth a listen.
