As a newb I’ve never been to one. Except for the blurb on the website, what can I expect?

Cheers,

holy shit there is some serious talent that is going to be there.
Are you planning on getting work done?
I don’t know about conventions on that side of the pond but here pretty much a big room or rooms filled with booths which have one or more tattoo artist in them pounding ink into peoples skin. The both is usually a table with books and art and crap on it and a couple of people sitting behind it. that being said I love them what a kick in the pants, I love getting tattooed at them mainly 2 reasons the quality of artist that you can get with a small amount of planning and that getting tattooed with people walking around and watching is very distracting from the pain.

Cheers Buttwheat, I didn’t have a clue what went on.
I’m not planning on getting anything done just yet, mine won’t be complete until November so I won’t have any cash until after then, just interested whether it was worth having a look or not.
would definitely like to have a nose round and see top artists at work.

I wasn’t going to get any more ink at all, but I’ve decided to get a couple more, life’s too short…

I’m bumping this since it is this weekend.
My artist Cory Norris will be there.
All you that are within a 5 hour drive should go.

Hopefully some of the UK members will find the time to go and maybe get some work done.
Or at least take some pics.
