Default Events In West Yorkshire

Hi there,

I am from Leeds and a friend of mine who is a tattoo fanatic commented that i should get my back peice shown at a tattoo event.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any in the Leeds (or West Yorks) area and what is the standard of tattoos there.

Personally I feel that she isn't as good as some of the tattoos I see in magazines, not cos her quality cos that is amazing (Dani at Ultimate Skin did a wonderful job) or because I dont like her but because she is personal to me, done at a pivotal part of my life there is imagery in her that echos my mindset at the time.

Thanks for any intput.

I think the guy was asking about conventions rather than tattoo studios in Leeds.

What ever happened to the Blackpool convention, or did I miss it this year?

thats the next one I'm off to. Its been held for the last 5 years at the Paradise rooms by the pleasure beach . Always the Sunday and Monday of bank holiday weekend August, think 28/29th this year, havent got diary handy to check dates. Only a small convention but was a good laugh last year. (lots of West Yorkshire folk there too if I remember rightly).

Talking Blackpool, home of fishy smells and tack!

Anyone got a link to a Blackpool convention website? Or know where I can get some info. I have been twice, missed last year, with some tattooist mates of mine from West Yorkshire (the place of my birth, my youth, my marriage, birth place of both my kids). I live in West Lancashire now.

Well, it's every Yorkshireman's duty to keep a skeletal occupying force in our war of the roses rival's territory.

The dates I've got for Blackpool are 29th - 30th August, so I've been told. Hope to go as I've heard it's a bit good.

Blackpool is only about 30 mins from where I live, but Bank Holiday weekend means idiots and traffic gallore, I think early set off for me and my peeps.

Neil, thanks for the website.

I have a full black and grey sleave and colour mad stuff to the elbow on the other, with a big chrome Koy swimming in a sea of blood, my wife has bright red hair too so if you see me, pop over and say hello.
