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, NC.
