    I haven't even talked to the boss about working down there. Most likely I won't be. I do work full time at Eternal in Livonia, even when there isn't a convention.

  34. Jim Quin 21/01/2014 at #

    I'm an amateur photographer (vested but don't publish or sell). This is my first Detroit tattoo convention. Any restrictions or release forms that need to be signed before attending, since tattoos are a form of art?
