So i am back at the shop now, after an awesome week away at the annual international tattoo festival in saipan (which is one of the most awesome places i have and probably will ever go to!)
I cant believe how well the convention went. everyone was super friendly, and there were some awesome artists there. they guys from Club tattoo (USA) were in the booth next to ours, and we had some funny ass nights out after the convention. we made some awesome contacts, and i got invited to work at some great studios (black eyes in japan, triple star in paris among others). we are welcoming guest artist ricky santana from skinworkz in dec so anyone interested get in touch. he's only working 3 days, so get your skates on!
anyways, the convention was 4 days, and i walked away with 1st place for "tattoo of the day" on thurs, for a gypsy head i did, and i won 1st place for "most realistic tattoo" on fri. and i won 2nd place for "tattoo of the day" on fri, sat and sun!
really quick post as i try and catch up on e mails etc from while we were away. here are some pics (more to come soon i promise!
