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:

    • Tylenol is not a blood thinner, it should be fine to take before the tattoo, the best things you can do before a tattoo is mentally prepare for it, put yourself in a pleasant place in your head, perhydrate the day and night before and get a good nights sleep, eat a really good healthy meal right before the tattoo, bring sugary candy and water with you to the tattoo, I bring skittles and M&M's, I also bring a banana to eat half way through, eat a little candy throughout the tattoo, it will make you feel better. don't forget to turn the sounds off on your phone during the tattoo,like the ringer and text alerts, it's the polite thing to do.  
    • I like the new guy's style, too.  Highlights and some outlining added to the top might help it, applied by the right person. Print out a photo and have him show you what he's intending.  I don't know about the Tylenol question, but I doubt it'd help much. It's just a sensitive area and it's gonna suck. 
    • Some time ago I have posted a tattoo that the guy screwed up. The tattoo is going to be "repaired" guy said that he needs a full session to make it look good.  Meanwhile he is doing me this to join both tattoos together there will also be colours like orange eyes and pentagram and flames around the horns.  But I couldn't last the whole session so he only finished the contours it was painful much more than the chest.  The only place I had a bit of relief was the middle of my belly.  So here is the question is Tylenol ok to use before the session.     And could you give me any personal opinion what do you think about this idea of tattoo.  Is it going to work I mean the top tattoo is kind of more realistic style and what is going to make on my belly is not going to be so much realistic. Personally I really like his style and the idea to put a bit of life to the top tattoo with colours but would to hear some honest opinions.   Thanks.  Pawel.
