VOTE NOW: Best Tattoos of the 2014 Newport Folk Festival

For the third year in a row, the grass clippings team surveyed festivarian flesh in Newport for the best tats. We are totally confident that we somehow overlooked your pal’s awesome tat (sorry!), but we still found some good ones. So, below are our contenders this year.

A special shout out for Joe Fletcher. Joe was the poster boy of the first ever Newport Tattoo contest in 2012 with his Woody Guthrie pec tat. This year Joe returns with a new tat, which he got in memory of his close friend David Lamb of Brown Bird, another 2012 tat finalist who passed away in April after a battle with leukemia. Joe’s new badass tat is of Lamb’s guitar and lyrics from a Brown Bird song.

Click the link below to vote on Facebook for the best tat with your likes. The winner will be picked based on all votes cast before Wednesday, August 6th, 2014. AND this winner gets a $25 Cracker Barrel Gift Card courtesy of your classy grass clippings Newport team (Garland, Stef, Richard, Emily and Vi).

All photos shot and designed by grass clippings photographers Vi Luong & Richard Kluver.
