      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

  1. How's it going everybody? Just wanted to share a website with y'all... u4ink.com Probably the Best Site for Finding Upcoming US Tattoo Conventions and Tattoo Events that you'll find on the internet. (200+ Listings) u4ink.com/conventions I created and manage the website and I update the list CONSTANTLY with new conventions. I also include a lot of details that can be very difficult to find for the events like ticket prices and door times, and have links to their official web pages and social media pages. It's sorted by state and is really easy to navigate. You can also filter the list by month or year, and I have section at the top that features all the upcoming events for the next two weeks. So check it out if you'd like, I also have a ton of other cool sections on the site like an artist directory, list of tattoo meanings and symbolism, galleries and descriptions of the many styles of tattoos, and a growing collection of articles on tattoo history, safety and tech. If you like the site, then follow U4ink on Facebook and Instagram so you get all the updates on new conventions and news articles in your news feed. Thanks
  2. thought maybe we could start a solid thread for conventions going on in 2013 and who is going to what, instead of having a millioin threads out there for specific ones trying to meet up with people. probably be best to have one thread for conventions/expos in northamerica and another thread for the ones in europe/UK. thatd help cut down on all the crossfeeds and make it a little more manageable. just thinking that this will be a little be easier source to check out conventions and good seminars going on, and excellent way to meet up with other trailers on the road if ya'll have a mind for that sort of thing. for starters, where do most of ya'll get your convention info? favorite sites etc;? currently i get most of my info from tattoonow.com or the bodyart expo pages. im slacking on signing up for conventions as of the moment, only signed up for 208tatfest in boise, Idaho, USA, and possibly gonna hit up the convention going on in philly. i like tattoonow alot, great exposure for your portfolio. but they mainly only post notices that have to do with off the map tattoo shop and where theyre gonna be convention and seminar wise; would be great to know a few other sites. let me know if ya'll would be interested to expand on this thread with a US and a UK version for conventions, and i'll start searching through and posting some links as well as the ones im planning on hitting up
