We were at the first South Parade Pier Tattoo Extravaganza last month, and I must say, it was a a great event, friendly atmosphere, bustling with colourful bodies, and staying true to ourselves, we took turns leaving our stall to get some ink! There was so much talent on display, once more, big names and apprentices alike, some artists are just amazing. The venue was perfect for a tattoo convention, being on the seafront, where sailors were tattooed back in the days.
Tomorrow, we are off to a local convention, in Bridgwater, the 5th Somerset Tattoo Convention which used to to take place outside a pub, under some marquees, but this year, the organisers have moved things indoors, at the Bridgwater sports and social club. I am looking forward to this, I have not attended the previous years so it will be nice to experience something local.
Then next weekend, we will be attending the Bournemouth Ink tattoo convention at the BIC. If the past 2 years are anything to go by, it will be a weekend to remember! I really hope to see many familiar faces again, and meet new ones. Come and say hello and eat some of our free sweeties if you're down this way! We will be there with new stuff we have picked just for you!
