Ink N Iron is always one of my favorite events. When we talk say “Respect the Trade”, Ink N Iron truely incorporates three amazing trades with remarkable examples of each. Tattooing, Custom Car Building and Music. That’s what the scene is at Ink N Iron and there is a bunch of it. You couldn’t image the amount of detail and craft that goes into each and everyone of the cars and tattoos. People from all over the world flock to hang out in a parking lot and a stuffy run down ship for the love of Ink and Iron. If you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it. Just be prepared to stand in line for a few hours. And by be prepared, I mean throw a 12 pack in a back pack and bring a bottle of sunscreen.
Obviously I can’t post all the picks otherwise you’ld be scrolling for days but feast your eyes on a few of my favs from the weekend. If you didn’t know, I’m an El Camino fanatic so I’m like a fat kid in a super fat candy store when I stumbled across Elcos like the killer green and white one you’ll see below. We where also glad to see our neighbors from the Devils Car Club representing Venice. They have got a super sick collection and are simply great guys. Besides all of the eye candy (cars, tats and pin up chicks) it was great hanging out with the girls and my homie D.Tea from VeniceRacket.com
OH… and M-CAT, you owe me a car cleaning for your drunken kettle corn shenanigans. HA!
