Recommended Posts

Might be early, but who all will be attending Bay Area 2018   October 19-21?! If so, who are you getting tattooed by / hoping to get tattooed by?

I'll definitely be there at least one day, but likely more. No tattoos planned yet.

The last couple conventions, I've helped set up and breakdown with Andrew at Raking Lights Projects. It's cool to see and feel the different vibe and atmosphere at those times. I  end up spending a lot of time chatting with him at his booth, so come by and say hi and check out some amazing art from some top-notch tattooers. Aside from art, they also put out some great books! If you don't have the 50 States book from Chad yet, you're missing out. Pick one up and go get it signed by Chad at the convention!!

I also have a buddy who might come down from Seattle to attend... he's hoping to get another tattoo from Luxiano. I'm trying to convince him to get more from other artists as well since he's never been to such a convention of heavy hitters and he has plenty more space than I do.

Hell yeah! Will definitely stop  by the booth. I got 7 last week (6 Pagoda + 1 Shop) and I'm trying to tone down the insanity at Bay Area haha. Not sure if I'll be able to though. Your buddy should absolutely take advantage of being around all these crushers!

my buddy's confirmed with Luxiano for Friday at 9pm. his appointment was initially at 7:oo, but he got bumped back. Initially, he seemed a little bummed, but i listed a few pros about getting tattooed a little later in the evening and he appreciated it.

I'm also hitting up the opening party at ATAK SF on the Thursday before. Anyone else checking that out?

DM me and let's connect.

Hey ! I've been so busy with work, haven't checked back in on the forum. I wish I could make that party, but I'm not getting there til an hour and a half before my 7:30PM Acetates appointment tomorrow night.  I've got 4-5 hour sessions start of Saturday and Sunday though, but you can only walk around a convention so many times haha. I'll definitely be stopping by the booth to shoot the shit.

    • 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?
