2016 BAY AREA TATTOO CONVENTION

Recommended Posts

Yup, I'll be there. No tattoos planned at the Convention, but I have an appointment with Jill Bonny the Friday afternoon before it begins. That should scratch an itch. I'm hoping to pick up a print or two while I'm there though.

@Dani forgot to check LST for this thread prior to the convention, so i missed this opportunity. perhaps next year!

@Gingerninja easy to have good taste at the Bay Area Convention.  great artists and amazing tattoos any way you turn.

One last pic. Andrew from Raking Light Projects talked me into picking this one up from Thomas Hooper... I just had to convince the wifey. You can see it hanging at his booth in the prior set of pics.

@Hands On Thanks for all the great pictures. I'm pretty sure that Hooper piece was hanging at that show at Somatic Gallery back in August. His pieces were different than I expected, but very awesome.

it was there... i saw it on Raking Light Projects IG post. i'm lucky no one picked it up at that time!

he has some amazing art that's much different than his tattooing. He has a book out, called Inward, that's available thru Tattoo Life Magazine http://www.tattoolifemagazine.com/bookthomashooper/
 and I also recently found out he keeps his website up to date, which is pretty rare in this age of FB and IG... https://thomashooperart.com/

my favorite post has all the backgrounds used for the "The Traveler" print. pretty great stuff. the short little video on this link is also damn cool https://meditationsinatrament.com/2016/09/21/the-traveler/

    • 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.
