Looking forward to Seattle Tattoo Expo 2013 - Seattle, WA :).

As I am quite the noob, I am looking forward to checking out some awesome art, meeting some cool people, and possibly getting a friend done up on my right shoulder :)

Yar!

Do yourself a favor and call Spider Murphy's and see if you can get an appt with Matt Howse for the convention.

Thanks for the heads up! I've already been shooting emails back and forth with Neil England on a piece for my shoulder, but if that doesn't pan out I would be thrilled to get a traditional piece done by Matt :).

I've never gone to the convention, but I lived above a tattoo parlor and a few bars that hosted some of the after parties...which...is completely irrelevant? ahahaha anywho, will be interested to see who's going and what's up for this year! haven't even wandered over to see who is going to be up here.

The only people i recognize is Matt Howse, Ms Mikki, The tattoo emporium, A couple shops from around Seattle,and Black Shamrock Tattoo from California. Nobody I couldn't go get tattooed by on any other week, or at the Portland show besides Jack Rudy and Matt and I think Matt is going to tattoo me after the convention in Portland (hopefully).

There is a Mr. Jack Rudy on the list! Otherwise lots of locals. Only one from SuperGenius, which is odd, I think, because Damon is the one who puts on the convention, I believe. Maybe he started it and has since sold it? And of course there is the possibility that I am misinformed. :)

Last year I was thinking about getting a booth for the shop and he was still running it, but who knows, yeah I didn't see Jack Rudy the first time. He would be a guy I would get tattooed by for sure.

Hah, prob someone has to run the shop while Damon tattoos at the convention! Hopefully it means everyone is booked and busy? Some good artists there.

Damons is fucking rad, I love watching him paint. There is still talk this year of us getting a booth, but it seems like everyone is always on vacation. Germany, Alaska, Amsterdam, Zimbabwe and it always conflicts with these types of things.

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
