Boston Tattoo Convention 2012

Recommended Posts

Rather than make a new thread, I figured I'd bump this one and ask if anyone's going this August (the 29th to the 31st). Since I am new to all this, I see quite a few artists I've heard of & like and a bunch more who I'm unfamiliar with.

I'm curious but I haven't heard many good things. But if you get tattooed by aaron coleman, jay cavna, etc it would be worth dealing with some of the sideshow/carnival aspects.

That's pretty steep, but I might still go on the Sunday. I've never been to a convention before and figured it might be worth it if I could pick up a print from someone. Didn't plan well enough to allow for getting tattooed; I just hope Mr. Coleman is back next year.

I went on saturday around noon. Only spent about 90 minutes walking around. The main room with the stage, microphone, and speakers was very loud. Recognized very few of the artists' names but chatted with the ones I was familar with and ended up enjoying it.

    • that's a bummer! i second everything @cyoonit123 said. do some research and find a great artist. with the right effort, you'll find that there's more than enough great tattooers who are also great people. you should be able to rebuild some faith in tattooing pretty quickly!
    • Welcome! We don't judge here, regardless of your tattoos. You have a lot of different people here in different locations with preferences in different styles. Feel free to ask around for artist recommendations. There are a lot of great and trustworthy artists out there so don't lose  hope!
    • Hi All, I'm pretty new.  I have 2 tats.  (and had a 3rd that was removed)  One of my tattoos is pretty bad and gave me an extremely poor opinion of tattoo artists and the industry in general.  I know it's not right to blame the industry.  But I just don't know who I can trust.  So I'm working up the courage to let someone look at it and possibly fix it. That's me in a nutshell.  I'll be poking around here and reading posts to learn a bit more.

      2012 Ink N Iron Tattoo Convention in Long Beach, Ca
      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 hi.....buy 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.
