I agree either Edinburgh or Glasgow would be excellent although any venue in Scotland would be a start. Edinburgh there is a few good venues, that is if the venues would be willing to host this type of event and it was not to expensive for who ever put it on and the councils do not put up to much red tape in the way.

Edinburgh is good central good transport by Road and Rail from both North/South and West and the Airport would hopefully help with some of the overseas artist hears hoping..

is this still happening, or has dealing with Scottish Councils been every bit as much of a pain in the arse as could have been predicted?

Don't think I can afford to get down south to anything convention wise this year, something cheap and local would be nice.

Wish something would be said about a Scottish tattoo convention.

Is anyone planning to start one?

If not what stopping is it lack of interest/red tape etc...

Could one be started ?

As normal with everything we do, you can expect something a little different. I have lots of ideas and even a name! but... It's early days yet and I'll obviously keep you posted how we get on.

Plumbing a sink into every single booth, hot and cold running water AND to add insult to injury they have to be hand free operated sinks.

Sadly just one of the many issues with a Scottish Tattoo Convention...

The good new for you, according to Jim is that it looks like there is, not one but two. One hell of a logistical nightmare for the organisers, unless they are in the plumbing trade .

Good luck to them though and its good to see the Scottish public being able to have easy access to local conventions. As some of you know we tried and looked into organising a Scottish show, but ultimately did not feel we could deliver all the stipulations that Scottish law dictates.

For example the sinks are checked the day before the convention and we were told even the slightest problem and the show would be canceled. In my opinion that's way too big of a risk for the organiser, artists, traders and members of the public.

So officially for record it is not Jazz Publishing that is involved in any of these events, as the grapevine seems to think.
