Matt and Cat talk to special guests: tattoo artist Tamara Henson, and Penny Forman, who has gotten many tattoos over the past 20 years. They discuss why people get them, some of the different aspects involved in choosing and getting them, as well as what its like to permanently (usually) ink someone for a living. Statistics and unique perspectives from both sides of the needle. Some Profanity.

Backstory Sessions, Episode 3

Backstory Sessions, episode 3 Click HEREMIFS9918[1]Cat has an awesome conversation with 4 special guests: Tiffany Early, Joey Stuckey, Jared Jackson, and Jeff Arseneaux. All involved have dealt with others’ perceptions of them and offer amazing insight in this discussion about how they deal with and have dealt with situations, people, comments, and life in general. It is a funny, very candid, and wide-ranging episode that we know will foster more awareness, and entertain in the process. It is long-ish, but really worth the listen.
