Ooooh liverpool! Ill see you there then!
I went to my first in Jan, i went to brighton and although the people i spoke to said london was the best one, i had an amazing weekend!
I took my non-tattooed girlfriend, who also had a fantastic time and was amazed by the quality of work there, both being done and being sported by guys walking round without tops on!
I highly recommend conventions now, it was great fun and really informitive!

Art is priceless, if you desire it that much, money has no value.

I have had Tattoos and loved Tattoos for years but i have never been to a convention. Hope to see some of you soon as i WILL make the effort this year.

I should have asked this on my other post, but ive always been curious as to how people go about getting tattoos at conventions, is there any pre-booking for your chosen artist involved or is it a case of queuing up, and do you show them your art right before they apply it or do you have to show them in advance, or do you let them ink you with work of their own?
Sorry for all the annoying questions.

Different every time!

Which I understand is a very unhelpful answer

Some folk take bookings, some do first come, first served. It's always worth contacting the artist you like and asking then in advance
