I am thinking about it. Jack Rudy will be there, but I am not sure if he is tattooing. I am about to drop a load of money tomorrow at Liberty, and I think that I am going to try and get tattooed by Marco Hernandez next month, so I don't know if I will have any thing leftover for the convention. But I am pretty dumb with my money so I may go down anyway.

Definitely two artists who crossed my mind. I was also thinkin about Henry Lewis. I'm also pretty broke at the moment*, but it's hard to pass up an opportunity to get tattooed by great artists who aren't from the area. Thing is... I don't really know what to get right now! (won't be posting a thread on here asking opinions).

ALSO... if you haven't heard, Shawn Barber's also doing a book signing over at Super Genius next week that I'm definitely checkin out.

*that inventory thread about the dude spending $17K in 10yrs is something my wife definitely should not see

Tell me about it and Grant Cobb is in town this weekend if I didn't already have the money committed for the convention and was rich I'd be down getting something from him. I just hope he and others start doing more guest spots at Liberty. I did tell my buddy to go see Cobb for his first tattoo and he scored an appointment so I will live vicariously through him.

I've been planning to make the Seattle show for over a year, since we started the squidpants.

I was going to make a weekend of it with the missus, book a hotel, hang out...

Turns out it's the same weekend we take possession of our new house, and have some work to do right away :(

Maybe next year.

    • Here’s my progress so far on my sleeve from Bobby Cupparo @ LOVEMACHINE N.Y.C. We’re about 25 hours in so far - I think we’ve roughly got about that left before the project is finished. I had (and have) ink fallout from black inks so my blacks usually need some touching up.  The lionness was the first piece of the sleeve to be worked on, and was recently worked on this past Saturday. The mandrill is a few months finished at this point. Everything usually gets touched up a slight bit going into each session to address problem areas. 
    • Nice! Are you Pittsburgher or bleed black and gold?
    • Yeah, no. You still don't know what you are talking about. Sorry, but don't make generalizations. They aren't helpful, and they are baseless.

      Is anyone else going, getting tattooed or tattooing this year?

      I am writing because the Baltimore Convention is this weekend and I am really not excited about it in the least! I will probably go tomorrow night for about 2 hours just to say hi to people only because it is my hometown convention and I want to see if there is any decent art I can pick up but like I said....not excited about the convention....only about seeing a few people I don't see too often!
      Now...Troy runs some really good shows so that's not it....and I was stoked about Philly because there were a few people there I wanted to get tattooed by.....BUT I used to want to go see my friends at shows....say some flash or art....and then hang out even if I didn't get tattooed! Now it seems....for me at least....the vibe is different and I am not as stoked about going!
      I find myself more interested in wanting to travel to people's shops to be tattooed anymore....that just seems to have a cooler vibe for me!
      I was just wondering what is everyone's thought on this was? (artist or enthusiast)

      Maybe I missed it tried searching here and on the Internet with nothing. What are the dates of this convention I would guess it would be in October maybe 19-21 2012? I just realized I am slated for vacation at this time so I am very interested in knowing.
