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.

Personally, I wouldn't get any serious work done at a convention, but hey, a chance to see what's what, and to spend a day soaking up general tattooism? Can't miss it.

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

TOO DAMN CROWDED!!!

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.

    • Who knows! It hurt a lot though, so I'm not sure if I want to do it again. This piece took me about 6 hours of tattooing plus one hour consult/aftercare. I'm super happy with it! (I hope pictures are okay in this thread, though it looks more crisp IRL)
    • You have more of a chance of F***ing it up than making it better if you start monkeying around with it. Go see a really good artist to get some ideas of what to add around it. There's nothing wrong with that tattoo. 
    • I'm healing a back of calf, about half in the ditch right now myself. Thin, tender skin. I don't see anything that looks like an infection.
