The first ever Santa Cruz Tattoo & Music Festival happen on March 3-5th at the Civic Auditorium. The 3 day event featured many tattoo shops and piercers which took up the main floor and various local musicians on the main stage. I stayed with my Freedom Tattoo Crew all 3 days. There's never a dull moment when you are with these boys. The highlight of the weekend was when our Nolan won 1st place with best medium black and gray piece. Cruz Cisneros and Nolan Hatton are both 26 years young and are killing the tattoo game in Santa Cruz Country. The key is they both are such true artists and have a very light hand when it comes to shadowing, so the end result is breathtaking.
