Chicago Tattoo Arts Convention

Recommended Posts

Since I'm not going to get anything done, and am not a tattooist myself, no. I thought about it but don't really want to spend the $20. I have a friend going who's going to be sitting for most of Sat getting his arm done but otherwise don't know anyone else going.

It was interesting, Else. Don't know that I'd get tattooed at a convention, but it was interesting!


I gotta say the people attending worked really hard at being polite, and I didn't see or hear of a single testy exchange. That said, the promoters need to work with the venue to get a little more room. The aisles were just too damn crowded, no way around it. If you stopped to look at something, or to talk to someone, bang-instant traffic jam.

Ah well. IT was a trip, and I did see quite a bit of interesting work there.

    • check this out,I love going to conventions,mingle,look,learn.You should go to it.maybe you could get some ideas and find an artist that you like,
    • I'm busy healing my new little addition, I got it on my arm and between the easy spot and the tebori the experience was the easiest to date.  I got a Daruma doll which was one of the two things I originally set out to get anyways, I have some rock climbing goals to reach and if I do I'll get the eye blacked in during the Jacksonville Imperial Arts fest.  Pics in a few days once the eye calms down.  
    • Agree with @Oiocha.  Let it heal and then see where you're at with it. I don't think moving your wrist is going to make it any worse. I recently started working on my first larger scale tattoo and I've definitely been down the over-analyze, stare at it all night path with it. It can drive you crazy especially if you're prone to being a perfectionist. Accepting imperfections is part of the process as I'm slowly learning. As a wise man once said in another thread, "my tattoos are as perfect as I am".  Credit for that goes to @JAC1961
