Default Styrian Tattoo and Hot Rod Show

Anyone been to this before?

I am off work then and flights to Graz look cheap enough. Might take our lass for a few beers as it looks pretty cool ................the Artist list looks good as well

Planning on extending me sleeve and finishing (or continuing) at London.

It is only the second time they are doing the show. Check it out! The organisers manage to put on a convention that has everything: Excellent artists, beautiful location (a former monastery!), friendly staff, decent prices, car show, great entertainment, wild partying...They even have a quarter-mile race this year. After last year's success they are expecting a huge turnout, which might cause problems re: crowding and accommodation. If you are going (highly recommended), try to figure out where to stay soon. Gleisdorf is a village and accommodation is limited (ask their tourist board for private b&b)
There are a few beautiful spa resorts not too far away, if you are going as a couple...
I'll be there for a week!

When I get confirmation from the artist I would like some work from I will book............looks a really nice location.

Cant decide on trying to get hotel in Gleisdorf (taxi from airport)......have a chill out weekend or ............hire a car and stay in Graz and drive about............either way our lass will spend a fortune

Waiting .....waiting .....waiting

Default Tattoo sorted

My artist is sorted ...........but our lass cant go.......

So I need a hotel with something to do .........if I don't hire a car.( still can't decide on the car thing......Flying on wed ....tattoo on Friday....flying back sunday or monday )

I will end up on the lash if I have all of sat and sun with no car!!

Anyone tried any of the hotels on the website........one of them has a sauna/pool etc which would make a nice thursday (not much use on sat/sun for me i suppose)

Still toying with the idea of staying in Graz.......................wonder if i can find a jazz club????.......................haha

Default hotels

wow...............bit of a job getting somewhere to stay in Gleisdorf!

Only thing I could get was "Check in - Cafe and Hotel" at the grande total of.......................25 euros per night + 5 Euros for breakfast...

100 euro for 4 nights B&B..........good job i am on me own and our lass isn`t going.

Hope theres a bed in the room.............actually at that price I hope theres no one else in the room!

Should be good for a laugh though.

Getting some work by Takami from Knockover Decorate Tattoo...............really looking forward to it

The "Check-In" is alright. Backpacker Style and a bit out of the way, and a nightclub on site. Last year the afterparty was there! And at that price you can't complain. Got to add in a bit for cabs, though. But that's just a couple of EUs every day. It's a cheap area, really.

looking forward to it.
