London Tattoo Convention 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi, The London Tattoo Convention isn't too far away now, anyone going? or have anything booked with any of the artists there?

I've got an appointment with Paul Dobleman on the Saturday and if I have enough spare money I might try and get a walk up too. Unfortunately My husband and I are in the process of trying to buy our first house - which is a good thing but so far it's been an expensive process and is seriously pitting a dent in bank account.

Be good to hear from any other members thinking of going :-)

Hey! Me and my brother are traveling over to London for the convention as well as some touristy stuff. I've got appointments with El Carlo, Deno and Jaclyn Réhe. I've been working far too much this summer, got to put the money some place ;)

Would be nice with a LST meet up!

Sounds great 3 appointments, you must have been working far too hard this summer! I'm not familiar with El Carlo and Deno - I'll have to look them up, jealous that you are getting tattooed by Jaclyn.

definitely be good to meet up with some LST members, I'm sure there will be a few people going :)

I'm going this year as well :) I was a bit late on deciding whether to go or not so I haven't booked with anyone yet but crossing my fingers I will get a call from Claudia De Sabe the next weeks, if not I'm going to try get a walk-in with Sarah Carter! Anyways It will be so much fun, and I know I will get some nice prints / merch and beers! Exited :cool:

I am going to the London Convention with my girlfriend. She is booked in with Civ and Stuart Cripwell. And when it comes to me, I get answers at the end of this month if I get an appointment with Mike Rubendall. Cross my fingers... I am also booked in with Hide Ichibay.

My girlfriend, @Ninab, is now booked in with Civ and Stuart Cripwell for the convention, and I am still waiting for a confimation from Mike Rubendall and Ichibay. What do you want from Henning Jørgensen if he gets a cancellation, @jade1955?

Some great stuff booked in there. I'm looking to get a Namakubi (severed head) on the back of my leg. Fingers crossed for you.

Namakubi is a great choice! Jørgensen makes them incredibly good. I was actually talking with @Iwar, about getting a Namakubi from Matt Beckerich from Kings A. as a backup-plan if the other appointments goes to hell. I really like his way to do them. Do you have a plan b if Jørgensen don´t have any cancellations? Fingers crossed for you too man!

My girlfriend and I will be there on the Saturday... our first time at a tattoo convention!

How do people generally get appointments with artists for these things? Just e-mail around who you're interested in getting tattooed by, way ahead of time? It would be awesome to have some work done, but I'm sure it's probably way too late to sort something.

Sending an email or calling the shop never hurts, but also pay attention to their instagrams because tattooers will often put their plans on there. Chad Koeplinger, for example, posted that he's doing walk ups only at the London convention so if you want to get tattooed by him you probably can if you show up early enough.

    • My tattoo started peeling a couple days ago and the part of the triangle came off unnaturally. Now it looks strange and it has a brown coloration around the affected area that concerns me. Besides that, it doesn’t seem to have changed and the texture of the affected area looks indented and different. What’s going on?
    • Not really a new tattoo but I got a call from the shop that did my tattoos. They are having a professional photographer come in to shoot some of the artists favorite pieces and the artist who did mine choose one of mine as one of his favorites that he wanted shot. Thought that was pretty sweet. I’m guessing it’s the clipper ship but I’m not sure.
    • My biggest tattoo so far, scarab and mandala. I love it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
