    Hubby and I are going to a tattoo convention in mid-May. What should I know? Weve never been to one. I hope to get my next tattoo while were there.

    I went to one in 2007...met Kat Von D whole there. I use to be a huge fan...anyway be prepared for it to be crowded. At least ours was super crowded cause we had a concert after. I wouldn't take a purse...just your ID and credit card/cash and put them in one of the secret lady hiding spots lol. That way there is no chance of being pick pocketed or anything.

    I went to one recently and it was awesome.

    It was crowded, and loud. There were artists from all over the midwest there. Everytime we stopped to look at books the artists tried to get us to get tattooed right then and there. We said no a lot because we were still looking.

    I also had a friend who got tattooed there but the woman fucked up her tattoo and it looked like shit. On th flip, the member from here that I went with got tattooed and it was awesome.

    We went to one back in Feb. for my birthday... Tons of fun, crowded, and sensory overload.

    I didn't get any new ink that weekend because I'd gotten ink the two previous weekends in a row.

    well, what you should know is that its gonna be overly loud, overly crowded, and unless you have a huge wad of cash and a specific artist youd like to get work done by, and can stand there waiting for hours on end, dont expect to get any ink..
    i always do my homework before even considering going to one,, see if theres anyone there thats hard to otherwise get a piece by, call their shop ahead and see if theyd be willing to tattoo me at the con.. and how they do their pricing ( either by the hour, or by the size of the piece.. ) and see if i need to make an appt. with them for the con, or if theyre only doing first come, first serve...
    ive been able to get some amazing work by famous peeps doing this ..

    good luck. and have fun

    Bring lots of money if you are planning on getting one while there. They are very expensive. And make sure you set up an apt with someone asap, because they will start to get really busy/full as the hours/days go on.
