After almost 5o years of Tattooing, New Jerseys legendary Ernie Carafa has decided to retire, Ernie has
left a permanent mark in tattooing history along with thousands of dedicated followers. Altought Ive
know him for many years I've never had the honor of getting tattooed by one of our greats. With two
days left in his shop Kris Fisk and I decided to go get a tattoo from our elder. I let Ernie pick what ever he wanted to tattoo on me and he chose a traditional swallow. Ernie I thank you for keeping our art alive and true to those before you and I can promise I will do the best to carry it on after you. Best of luck to you in what ever you do and thanks for the great tattoo.

Tom came in today to get tattooed and of course to trade great stories. Originally the plain was to come up with a piece that incorporated the CCE wings, but that changed and we did a more
traditional style Panhead and dagger. Great time as always with boogie rag joe and fat bob.
Tom thanks for the Sweet Virginia license plate
