It’s a beautiful day in Riverside, California. Perfect weather for the start of this year’s Baby Tattooville which is being held at the historic Mission Inn once again. The Arrested Motion crew is on scene in full force as witnessed by our badges seen above and we will be bringing you on-site coverage through the weekend. Events to look forward to include the collaborative Art Jam painting, Michael Hussar’s Wunderland, Circus Punk Customs, the Mark Berry Film Festival, the Baby Tattooville On Parade show (previewed) at the Riverside Art Museum, and Blacksmith Tony Swatton in the Catacombs, and much more. We will also be visiting the plethora of artists here for the reunion year including KRK Ryden, Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Luke Chueh, Gris Grimly, Frank Kozik, Lola, Tara McPherson, Ragnar, Jeff Soto, Ana Bagayan, Bob Dob, Brandi Milne, SHAG, Amy Sol, Molly Crabapple, James Gurney, KMNDZ, Travis Louie, Liz Mcgrath, Miss Mindy, Buff Monster, Philip Warner, Yoskay Yamamoto, Van Arno, Anothony Ausgang, COOP, Ron English, Michael Hussar, Johnny Ryan, and William Stout.
