2013: The Bay Area Convention of Tattoo Arts

Recommended Posts

Won't be able to make it out to this but would anyone be willing to pick me up a copy of Horitomo's Cat Book and then ship it out to me? He will be selling copies there and I'd would like to avoid purchasing online when they become available for the fear of it selling out too quickly. I could send money via pay pal; enough to cover the book, shipping, and if you'd like a copy of it as well for your troubles.

Might take you up on this.

flying in friday morning, Plan on taking the B A R T to see katie sellergren for some lettering then going to see @Stewart Robson Friday night.

@Valerie Vargas Saturday afternoon as well, would i be completely crazy to entertain a walk up if it presents itself to me???

You would be completely crazy NOT to take the walk up! ooor completely out of money because you're saving for/just got awesome tattoos....(my likely situation)

I'm arriving early Friday morning, prob kicking it in a park and visiting friends during the day, and then was thinking of taking BART out there and checking out the convention Fri night because I will be getting tattooed like ALL of saturday, and won't have time to check everything out before I leave way too early on sunday morning. :)

Ahh, the unplanned trip. I am so exciiited!!!

I'm getting really pumped for this. It'll be my first year attending.

My wife's got some appointments lined up with a few of the Frith Street crew and I'll be fighting the urge to get a walk-up from about 20 different people...

don't fight it! take advantage of it!! ;)

Any tips? I know some people leave a day open for walk-ups.

get there as early as you can on Friday... browse the artists and portfolios. if you find someone you like, ask if they have any time available thru the weekend. If you bring down a cooler full of Dick's Deluxes, perhaps I can drop a few tips on a some great artists who are likely to have walk-ups.

You want Dick's? I'm willing to negotiate. ;) I wonder how the TSA would feel about that cooler? Likely fine so long as I left a few with security ;).

My nephew.. Was unable to go, and I am working 70 hour weeks until mid November. Which means we can afford a house next year (and more tattoos), but I'll have to miss the convention.

Sad panda, but I shall live vicariously through you guys until the next one :).

Make it rain (Dick's) while you are there and get a good walk up!

Yes, let's try to meet at the convention. I'd be more than happy to since I'll be missing the pre-party. I'll probably dive into the city Friday to see some old friends at some point, but I'm staying at the Hyatt all weekend.

Horrible description, but I'll be an Asian guy with long hair, glasses, black & grey Japanese sleeves, probably wearing black or some shade of grey, trying to be discreet about staring at everyone's tattoos but too shy to approach you and ask ;-)

Anyway if you see me before the meet, just come up and say Hi!

I'm down! I'll be at the convention from opening Friday, feeling very shy and possibly overwhelmed/overstimulated/euphoric from the sea of tattoos parading before me (I really like looking at tattoos! I know ALL of you feel me on this!) .

Getting tattooed literally all day on Saturday...is it polite to say "come say hi to me here!"? 'here' being the tattoo booth or whatever.

@Lance I will also be rocking the black/grey awkward look. :)

Looks like it starts at 5pm and runs till 11pm on Friday. Bummer for me, since I'll have to run for the BART by 6 or 7 to see previous said friends in SF. Hmmm, friends vs. tattoo convention. Decisions, decisions...

It runs 11am-11pm Saturday and 11am-6pm Sunday.

    • I commissioned this from Yoni Zilber! Just saw it reposted on a new page called Tattoo Love Care, https://www.instagram.com/ttt_l_c/, created by @blackclaw @tttism @zacscheinbaum. Their description is "Aid-Promote-Educate. A place to help tattooers in need and discover new artists, causes and events." Check it out!
    • Hello, I'm new to the site and looking for some advice. Thanks in advance for any help. I'm just trying to get a second opinion. So I have a few tattoos, mostly all done by the same artist. A very well known shop and artist in the area. Iv never had this issue before with any other tattoos. But started a sleeve back in January and my last session was 4 weeks ago. My arm just finished peeling from the last session and half of the ink did not stay in my arm. Everything else that has been done looks fine except the top of my arm. I sent pics to the artist and he said it must of been the ink he used as I didn't not do anything different then I usually do during the healing process. He said he can go back over it but then our state got shut down due to covid19. So now the shop won't open back up until God knows when. It doesn't hurt,itch or is swollen or anything it just looks like pink/damage skin. I was just trying to get a second opinion that this can be fixed. Should I have to worry about anything between now and when I can get it fixed.  Thanks again David.
