I’ve never been to a tattoo convention or expo or anything like that. Since this one is in my neck of the woods and I’m getting a piece by one of the artist that’s attending, I thought I’d check it out.

They are cool. It is always a good chance to get tattooed by a great tattooist with out the huge waiting list but still be careful any old yahoo can tattoo there just by giving the entry fee.
I like getting tattooed at conventions as all the people watching is a good distraction.

I looked through the list of attending tattooists and only heard of a few of the names and none of those I would knock myself out to get inked by. kristel oreto does great work but she charges her hourly rate for all time spent with you.talking,drawing up the design the stencil, setting up and of coarse tattoo time. she starts a timer.

definitely looks like the style I like, I wouldn’t like her charging style though.

My wife got tattooed by her at a shop and she was really fast. Cant comment on her convention timer haha. I dont even think she was there though. She bails on conventions if she doesnt book up her time.

sorry,but that’s bullshit IMO,she could walk on water(which is what many tattooers think they do) and I wouldn’t give her the time of day,that’s a little over the top. fuck that shit.

the tattoo world has gotten a little out of control in regards to cost and tattooers thinking their shit doesn’t stink.
