London Tattoo Convention 2012


Recommended Posts

I'll be there on the Friday for a couple of hours. No plans to get tattooed (got an onward flight the following day to Cambodia, can't face trying to heal anything in the soupy conditions I'm expecting) but if there's a meet-up I'll have a coffee and shake some hands...!

I'm hopefully going to be going on the Sunday, not got anything booked as I'm away until the Saturday but might walk round and see if I can get a walk up if anyone has free time. If I manage to go it will be my first convention as well

I am travelling down to London for the convention this year. Only other convention I have ever been to is the the Brighton convention which I believe is a bit smaller. Really looking forward to it as the line up of Artists looks awesome. Getting tattooed by Henning Jorgenson on the Saturday evening. Should be a good weekend.

Wow, very lucky getting work from Henning! Last year he was in a booth with Mike Rubendall, i could have spent the whole weekend sat in front of those guys.

Just left the con. My first time at the London show, so I have no idea how it compared to other years but... Wow, some amazing stuff happening already.

Couldn't get any work done but wandered around hoovering up t-shirts...

Said hello to Valerie from frith street (briefly, their stall was one of the busiest I saw)... Nice to meet a famous LSTer- and she was very nice.

Some random pics. I hung out with the East Tattoo guys and had a cask ale. Good day.

Attached = a black and grey front piece Yang was working on...

Great day yesterday, got a little leopard head in my elbow ditch (far from a pleasant experience). I did see a guy in an LST t shirt walk past while i was being tattooed but i wasn't really in a position to get up and accost him!

I'll throw a pic on when i've got rid of this hangover :/

It was a great day for leopard heads. Who did yours?

So i see from the latest tattoo thread! Mine was done by Ross Nagle, more of a snow leopard vibe as it's mostly blue, so happy with it. I'll throw a pic in the other thread after i give it a wash, it's pretty raised right now but i guess that's just because of the location.

    • Yessir I still have a 2 bicep bands scheduled with the same tattoo artist. He says he’ll know exactly how to do it for next one because now he knows how his depth should be with my flesh especially on the inner bicep. He says we should be good no issues. what do you guys think? Should I continue - he says the tattoo would be free given the previous ones. 
    • It takes 6-8 weeks to heal. You’ll know then, regardless of how many times you ask or how you word the question. Having said that, thin delicate skin, like where you got your tattoo, is most prone to blowouts and thin lines make them the most obvious. There is nothing you can do except cover them up if it really bothers you. It’s been asked dozens of times.
    • hi guys, ive recently had 2 band tattoos done and it’s been 5 days since. first is the wrist band (3 lines) and the second is the ankle band (1 thick line between 2 thin lines) I’ve been rubbing Richie Bulldog certified hustle butter on it daily (twice a day) since taking off the plastic cover. First plastic seal was put one for 24 hours then I washed it and dried it and put another plastic seal for 48 hours. So I’ve rubbed hustle butter since Wednesday evening. my questions are: - are these major/minor blowouts? - would you continue using same tattoo artist after these blowouts? - tattoo artist is willing to fix them with same skin tone ink to camouflage it (after it is fully healed) free of charge - would you move forward with this? - how long does it take to fully heal? - if tattoo artist is willing to do a free tattoo for this inconvenience, should I consider it? ankle band: front view: Outer side view : : inner side view: Back:
