I might be wrong, but I'm fairly sure Shige is booked up 2 or 3 years in advance even for convention appointments.

We can't go this year, which I'm gutted about cos I wanted Marcus Kuhn to do my other hand this time around. Damned wedding costing too much money!

'Wangling' at the London Convention is a nightmare; most of the top artists are fully booked, and everyone will have the same idea as you.

I'm being tattooed by Thomas Hooper there, this year.

Some of the artists do have a first come first served system, but even still you have to be there as it opens on the first day and go straight to their booth so sort your appointment out, cos the big names working on this basis will be booked up for the whole weekend really soon after it opens.

And you've gotta bare in mind that there's a ton of non-payers inside already, who want to get tattooed

You jammy sausage!
I waited outside from 7am to be the first in line with Joe C, cold and horrible but so worth it.
Just booked up in advance this year.

I'm tempted not to introduce myself to anyone until AFTER I get tattooed. He's doing the inside of my upper arm, and I'm going to be in agony. I don't do pain very well lol
