Already booked my room! Best tattoo venue! This will be my third year attending!

Best tattoo convention I’ve been to. Unfortunately I’ll miss this one but it’s a great weekend if you can make it.

Can’t wait. I’ll be there the 12th getting tattooed.

Is Matti Hixson going to be there

So how would I contact them to make an appointment for Saturday 1/13/18

So how might I go about finding the best possible artist for a specific idea I have? Is there some kind of forum or Facebook group of DC area artists, where I can describe my idea, and people can recommend a specific artist?I'd like to make an appointment at the show, but I have no idea how to even start choosing an artist.

How much are tickets?
