The conclusion to this amazing segment has finally arrived. I’m bummed to say that this is the last episode of this segment, as well as the season. I’m hoping that there’s a chance there’s still going to be a bonus episode like they did with Valarie Vargas, but I haven’t heard anything about that as of yet.
The last two episodes have been really great. Between Thom’s Huck Spaulding back piece, Ed Hardy talking about the Lowed East Side of Manhattan, the tattoo man, and the fact that part five is 26 minutes (I don’t want to ruin any of this episode for those of you that have yet to see it), I don’t know which episode is better. These two episodes have been two back to back episodes that have amounted to my favorite. I honestly don’t know how to talk about this segment of the series without sounding like a fan boy, but man was it excellent. From start to finish, Thom’s segment was such a wonderful series of stories, visuals, history, and insight into the life of an eccentric character in tattooing that was a pioneer and an amazing tattooer and artist.
Tattoo Age has been incredible and really stands alone in the realm of tattoo series, aside from The Gypsy Gentleman. Most of what Vice does is at the forefront and the pinnacle of news and media, and Tattoo Age doesn’t deviate from that. With that said, here’s the concluding episode to Thom’s segment. Let’s hope this is far from the last episode we see of this series.
