The first tattoo convention of 2014 and tattoo junkies were there, all set up and ready to ink. And ink we did!We started off the year with a bang (fully booked up for tattoo freeze). Once the stand was set up displaying all our goodies including art work, prints, our t shirts and vests, sketchbooks and lots and lots of stickers we got to work with the tattooing.
The first tattoo of the day was a large black nod red abstract leg piece that was made up of a realism human heart and black splatters with a red geometric pattern running through it. Next I got to work on so e little fun tattoos both including the number 13 for a couples wedding anniversary and lastly a nice little splatter rose
Other attractions of the day were ice carving, roller derby, live graffiti artists and bmx bike riders, as well as a vw camper van show.
Terri our shop manager had a beautiful bold colour piece done by the very talented Craig Wilson from electric kicks in Pontefract, they entered it in to best small colour tattoo competition but unfortunately lost out to the brilliantly talented dek kent also working at electric kicks in Pontefract. (Never mind Craig ... Always next year)I had an amazing time and met some fantastic people through working at this tattoo show. I want to say thank you to all the people who helped me out while I was there and gave me advice and helped me to grow as an artist.....Bring on the next one!
