For the first time in years, I will NOT be at this convention. (Where's the dislike button for my own post?) Gonna be out of town at a family wedding. I'm so bummed about it.

I am seriously thinking of making this trip,just curious how hard would it be to get work done by some of these big names? I have never been to a convention of any kind, how well attended are these?

Some artists you can email/call in advance and get appointments while others only do walk-ups at conventions. The best bet is to contact the specific shops/artists you wish to get tattooed by and find out what their schedule looks like.

UPDATE: We're too broke to fly to the out-of-town wedding, so we'll be at the convention, where we'll be too broke to get tattooed, but at least we'll get to meet some folks. I'll also get to pick up my copy of the new Bloodwork Bodies book!

I'm so stoked that Valerie and I will be working this! I look forward to seeing some of you there.

So great that you're coming! I usually run through the building a few times over the weekend, can't wait to meet you guys in person.
