James Vaughn specializes in neo Japanese and old school traditional tattooing styles. He's won over 300 awards and has been published more than 20 times for his work. Not only has Vaughn has been tattooing for more than 20 years, but he also made it to the final three on season one of "Ink Master." But leaving without the title did not stop him. He now owns two tattoo parlors in North Carolina, Straight A tattoo in Asheboro, Emerald City Tattoo & Piercing in Greensboro and has no intentions of returning back to the south without the "Ink Master" title in hand.
