11th Annual NYC Tattoo Convention

I’m excited to be hitting the 11th Annual NYC Tattoo Convention this weekend in NYC. I know I’ll see tons of “awesome” tattoos, but I can’t wait to see some of my favorite artists like Dan DiMattia and Chris O’Donnell (who I have had a crush on for years! Shhh don’t tell!). Catching up with old friends alone is worth the trip. I’ve even heard whispers that Cere is getting some kind of “Life Time Achievement Award”.

I’m bringing my camera along to take some pictures since the last convention I went to was Buenos Aires and before that, Montreal. I won’t have a booth at the NYC convention (hell, they won’t even give me a press pass!) but if you see me, be sure to say hello!

  1. I wish I could be in two places at once!! :( I had to be in NYC this week and next so I’m here for the NYC convention.

  2. Maybe they’re just listed under a shop name? That would definitely be weird if there were no Brits! From what I’ve seen, the Ohio convention is competing fairly heavily with the NYC convention.

  3. I noticed the distinct lack of Brits as well! Maybe we’re all basking in the hint of Summer going on at the moment, let’s face it, it’s all we’re likely to experience this year…

  4. am i the only one who think a load of UK artists should all arrive at once preceeded by a bloke on a horse ringing a bell and yelling ‘THE BRITISH ARE COMING!’

  5. @1 cleveland sucks. i would know cuz i live there.
    couldn’t they get a better artist for this flyer?

  6. I’ll be there – how can I not, I’ve made it to every one that they’ve held since it started in 1998.

  7. >>Just to be pedantic, there is a Brit: Max MacAndrews — Scotland.

    >No English artists though.

    You beat me to it.

  8. #8, I live in Pittsburgh. Having now seen a Clevelander say “Cleveland sucks,” from now on I will consider that statement to be axiomatic. Thanks.
