Steve Judson



Old Bones and Tales of Tattoos is an extension of my, (at times) obsessive relationship with tattooing. Making art is only a portion of what it means to be a tattooer. The interaction/energy exchange that takes place during the act of making a tattoo between the tattooer and the tattooee is equally important. OBTT podcast aims to capture that energy. It’s the audio landscape of tattooing without the needle pins and pigment. It’s story telling through the lens of tattooer. Of course none of this could be possible without my producer, Mike Thompson. We’d like to welcome you to Old Bones and Tales of Tattoos…

In this episode we are joined by Steve Judson, of GD Jiujitsu. Steve is a MMA OG and a total badass. He candidly bares his soul and we are happy to give him a platform in which to share his story. Tell a friend!

Bale Sisneros ep#8



In episode 8 Mike and Tony catch up with Bale Sisneros on Sunday morning of the New Mexico Tattoo Fiesta. Bale and his partner, Brian Everett, set the bar very high with the production of the show. It was so busy that we had a hard time pulling tattooers away from the floor to record with us as there were plenty of tattoo clients to go around. Bale is a true Burque OG. He goes on to explain how Por Vida Tattoo came about and what he’s been up to as of late. Check it out!
