LST Get Togethers & Tattoo Conventions

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was looking forward to attending the Mario Barths tattoo convention in Vegas this year, but it was cancelled. Already got the flight tickets for me and my girlfriend. So taking the trip anyway and having a blast. However, looking to hook up with some tattooers to hang out with and maybe get some ink done. We arrive 20th sep and leaving 3th oct so if someone want to hook up or can recommend a great shop, send me an pm here or mail me at atle@sdtattoo.no

I have a tattoostudio in norway so it wil be possible for some overseas work in the future.

Looking forward to the trip.

Atle

just notice this Margarita...The Saskatoon, Vancouver and Edmonton tattoo conventions are in April. I think the Montreal and Calgary conventions are in October.

Summer/Fall is the best time to see Canada. Don't come in the winter! The major Canadian cities are really spaced out, so while the scenery is beautiful the drives are really long. My $0.02 check out the west coast - Vancouver and take the ferry to Vancouver Island. Ocean, mountains. just go see the sights and visit a few cool shops along the way. good luck

Hi every one !

Please let me know if I am not in the right section (I have not found out how to create a new topic).

I am a French student in Madison, Wisconsin until mid May. And I would like to go to some tattoo conventions here in the US.

So I am looking for some advice : which conventions would you recommend me ? Are some people here from Wisconsin, or Chicago, or another place in the area ? I'd like to travel for that purpose, would some people be willing to meet me at conventions thoughout the country ? 

I arrived just two weaks ago, so I'm a bit lost here, and I'd love to meet some people who share my interest for body modifications =)

Thanks everyone !

Mym

@Mym The first thing that I would checkout is the Great Lakes Walkup event at Great Lakes Tattoo in Chicago. Here's their website link: http://greatlakestattoo.com

Check their Instagram, too!

Every year this comes up I think about it, notice the terrible timing (usually the week before daughter's spring break) and say "next year"... 

So I guess what I'm trying to say is maybe next year.

In case anyone is interested in a good place to FIND upcoming tattoo conventions, I have a list on my website which you can search for events by state or event date. 

Only US Tattoo Conventions but it's probably the most complete list out there:

The 2018 Atlantic City Tattoo Expo: Nov 2-4 looks very interesting. I plan on going. Anyone else? It will be my first time attending a tattoo convention.

    • I posted before when we opened cast iron tattoo so proud of my wife she’s the artist.  But now I’m here to share a bit more.  We were just on the news.  Started a campaign for domestic violence victims.    https://www.khq.com/news/davenport-tattoo-artist-offering-free-cover-ups-to-victims-of/article_aa4371ca-16dd-11ea-83ee-3fc2d6a348ce.html   And we are blowing up.  Problem is we are a tiny shop one artist in a small town.  Now having a hell of a time trying to balance doing the free stuff.  Trying to get grants to help cover expenses for those.  And doing enough paying work to say open but still help victims and somehow manage to have personal lives.     that said if anyone can help spread the word.  We don’t want to turn anyone away but bookings for victims for free cover ups are now booked through March leaving only enough openings to hopefully Book enough paying work to balance it all it.  If you want to help more start your own campaign or if your near Spokane join our campaign.  Or even more get in touch with us and ask us how you can help. 
    • I don’t know that they would have to or even would. For a tattoo that small it wouldn’t surprise me if they just went over the whole thing again to keep it even. Talk to your artist and let them make the decision to go over the entire thing or not. Also let them decide if you should wait longer before the touch up. There is no reason to think it would heal any faster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • They gotta go over the whole thing?? I was hoping just the one part 😔. Another month???? Gosh. Will it heal quicker this time around?
