Kicking off our coverage of the ninth and what is billed as the last Baby Tattooville is our first look at the event. This year, they took things to the next level to go out with a bang with a stellar list of artists for 2015 – Anthony Ausgang, Sas Christian, Olivia De Berardinis, Ron English, Camille Rose Garcia, Bosko Hrnjak, Marion Peck, KRK Ryden, Mark Ryden, and Isabel Samaras.

First up at The Mission Inn was a check-in where attendees got some artist designed swag (much more to come later) as well as a schedule of events. Next, there was welcome panel where artists talked about the art retreat, answered questions, and mingled. Then, the everyone headed to the rooftop of the Riverside Art Museum ahead of the opening of the Baby Tattooville: Fade to Black exhibition.
