M.O'C Skateboard Decks! For all your Heelflippin' Mongo-footin' Noseslidin' Fun!

Be the coolest dude in the hood as you hang 10 on your new
radical Mitch O'Connell awesome deck!

I hope that sentence was relatable to my target audience.
Or, if you're over 30 and more fragile than those backward hat wearing
tattooed teens, buy 'em just to hang on the wall!
In any case, before you skip school to go to the local skateboard park,
or terrorize the elderly and decent Americans by doing your "tricks" where
people who actually work for a living are trying to walk, visit-

"The Dirty Needle," a Sinful Show of Erotic Tattoo Flash Delights! NSFW!

The countries most popular show of erotic art,
Detroit's "The Dirty Show(™)," has successfully wrapped up another year
of making the world a more naughty place!
A big thanks go out for letting "The M.O'C Dirty Needle" join in,

by being a freestanding show within a show,
devoted to the art of tattooing, at this spectacular event!
And, of course, another big thanks to the artists that filled the walls
with their triple X rated tattoo flash!

Below are a few snapshots taken in the quiet before the storm, just before 10,000
art lovers flooded the warehouse,
and a couple taken peeking out The Dirty Needle door at the
fun loving debauchery going on all night long
(plus a selection of G-rated family vacation photos of the Mrs. and our little one).
And, most importantly, NSFW photos of what made The Dirty Needle actually dirty,
the tattoos (let me know if you actually get one tattooed)!
If the Dirty Show will have me, I plan to make it bigger and better next year,
and the year after that, and the year after that!
Artists, break out the paper and start working on next years submissions.
Art collectors, start clearing spaces on the wall!

My assistant and I await the masses!
