Not Your Mother's Tattoo Shop

Guest Contributor

I like tattoos. I like tattoos a lot. So when the chance came up for me to interview the owners of Other Mother Tattoo, I jumped at the opportunity. I already knew that Briana Walker and Whitney Harbin were amazing at what they did, but after our conversation, I decided to start referring to them (and all the other tattoo artists that I know) as artists—not just tattoo artists.

A Conversation with: Forked Deer Homeschool Parade

Olivia Chin

It’s a cloudy, dreary December day outside, but the laughter between the three musicians I’m sitting with is making things seem brighter.

Keegan shared with me about how Small Town Big Sound writes, records, and produces the music of our area.

A Conversation With: Coopertheband

Olivia Chin

Being young with creative aspirations takes hard work and initiative, sometimes particularly so in smaller towns. Yet Jackson is the lucky home to a plethora of up-and-coming talent with big plans for the future. Having lived and worked here for several years now, the members of Coopertheband are no strangers to the trials and rewards of the independent music world. They have recently played several shows back-to-back in the community, extending their central messages of hope and joy through their lyrics.
