For my first time going, it was ok, thought it was very cramped, some good work on show, Tom Sugar probably my pick of the bunch although Skinworks made a good show of it.

Some guys gonads hanging out whilst being tattooed on his leg was probably not the best sight, lol.

Hope the wife's ok mate.

yeah my good lady is on the mend.

one of my regulars give me the run down today....seemed to be well supported....although he didnt hear of a few artists at this show before....and willie has been around loads of shows.?
cramped is what he said as well.
nice laid out booths though.?
might be better with jus a few less booths too.?
and ,just maybe some names....?

just good to hear theres an interest over here in tattooing.?

so i must say...big well done for their first attempt.?

Yeah seemed like a lot of punters having a look around, a lot of work being done, most to a very high standard.

Disappointed to see one artist swilling beer whilst working though, not something i'd like to see from someone working on me but, hey his work was good.

It was organised and run by a scratcher who made money off of legitimate artists doing what he wishes he could do is the jist I was given

Wasnt impressed with it at all, most stalls were not very approachable, didnt think there was a friendly bunch behind them, just glad my tickets were free or it would have been a waste of 10

Count me in with the unimpressed. Ulster hall was a crap venue, stalls too cramped and not very accessible, some dodgy hygiene practices on display, some pretty poor artists and not enough big names to make it worth a tenner.

Might be OK as a starting point, but the organisers have some tough lessons to learn if they want to make this a regular convention.
