LONDON INTERNATIONAL TATTOO CONVENTION 2016
Last Thursday I ate my last healthy breakfast and prepared for 4 days of chips and rum. I was so stoked to attend London International Tattoo Convention once again, that I didn't even mind that I had forgotten my coat - ok slight exaggeration as that was one cold train ride!
The International Convention is held at London Tobacco Dock, and is an easy commute to from the centre via underground/ overground rails.
The event hosts hundreds of the worlds top tattoo artists in various galleries around the building. The artists have the opportunity to enter their weekends work into categorised competitions. The venue also has plenty of trading shops, art galleries and stages featuring entertainment such as beard competitions, Circus of Men and The Fuel Girls. There was also performances from bands including Orange Goblin and Raging Speed Horn. The venue also has food and bars on site.
For me this convention is one of the UK's best, in terms of quality of artists. There truly is some amazing work bashed out over the entire weekend. A massive inspirational collective of the best styles in tattooing.
I managed to capture a few shots on the old camera whilst browsing..check them out at the end of this blog.
A massive thank you to Beadesaurus (www.beadesaurus.co.uk) for stocking our product over the weekend. - Huge thanks to everyone to purchased it all!
As always it was lush to catch up with the Total Tattoo crew (plotting some plans with these guys in the future). Also great to meet with some tattoo artists and other brand owners.
Thanks to the LTC crew!
See yeh at the next one...
