His shows went great, a bunch of people got some tattoos and he generally spread his radness of work and self across the city. Now, a few years later, Mark is returning for another show at Backwoods Galler – and it promises to be every bit as awesome as his last visit! “Few people have had as much on an influence on the world of graffiti as the father and son team of Vaughn and Mark Bode.
