Tattooed Mom's has a history with the show as they have hosted Rick and Morty events in the past. Rickmobile organizers and road crew contacted Tattooed Mom's special to be the only site in the region during this special tour across America.
"Tattooed Mom's discourages growing up as you get older," Tattooed Mom's event coordinator Wedge Wegman. "Rick and Morty is is the perfect example of getting older and staying true to yourself, and doing what you want to do - and the perfect embodiment of love and good times. And that's our mantra."
