Ink Master BioEdit
With talent and a wicked sense of humor coupled with southern charm, James Vaughn is the ultimate triple threat.
Vaughn got his first tattoo when he was 12. It was a cross that he still has on his hand. From that moment, he was hooked on tattoos and the art of tattooing.
Vaughn specializes in neo-Japanese and old school traditional tattooing styles. He's won 300+ awards and has been published more than 20 times for his work.
In the tattoo world, he is a rare breed because he still draws all his designs free hand on his client's skin with a black Sharpie. Vaughn has been tattooing for more than 20 years and owns his own shop, Straight A Tattoo, located in Asheboro, North Carolina.
