Branson, Missouri is known for its luxurious resorts and golf courses, museums and attractions. And now it’ll be known for… tattoos? That’s right. America’s bloodiest band of heavy metal hellions, SCUM OF THE EARTH, is bringing the world of tattoos and piercing to this seemingly tranquil area of the country.
On April 23, the band’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Riggs (formerly of ROB ZOMBIE) opened the doors to Riggs’ Monster Tattoo parlor. The new business venture is sure to overwhelm local residents and tourists with a way of life filled with lust, carnage and debauchery, cranium-cracking music, and infectious art brought on by some of the top tattoo artists in the business. Riggs has assembled an all-star crew of tattoo artists to keep the shop running at its most fevered pace, including Rev. Tim Pontillo, Justin Eakins, Eden Draven and Crazy Joe McVeigh.
Riggs’ Monster Tattoo is home to a crazy collection of famous guitars, movie monsters, stage props, gold and platinum records, music and horror movie memorabilia, and the best tattooing and body piercing in southern Missouri.
“This is not your average, boring, slapped-together-quick tattoo shop like the others here in town,” proclaims Riggs. “We took the time to make our shop stand out from the rest, with prices that can’t be beat.”
