  1. This is my life testimony of how my husband who left me for 6yrs came back.
    I am Stephine
    We have been married for three years when he suddenly disappeared with a young rich girl to another country. My life become devastated and shattered because i love him so much, he was every thing to me, upon that i became very sick with affliction, i search for help everywhere possible for cure. I meet so many people who promised to help me but at the end they fooled me and took my money, so i gave up with no hope of getting my husband back again, until i meant an old friend called Sarah who saw my misfortune and introduce me to one Dr. Harrison, at first i didn't believe him thinking he is one of those who cheated me before, but after much pressure and assurance from my friend i decided to contact him. After contacting him he gave me assurance that i should not worry that he will help me with my husband and my sickness, after 48hrs of contacting Dr Harrison i was amazed when my husband who has not called for the past 6yrs called me pleading with tears and many apology that he is coming back home. TO cut the story short he came back penniless he said that he was duped, yet i was so happy that my husband is finally back, but when Dr. Harrison heard of his predicament he told me not to worry that he will help me with everything. The same week i meant Dr. Harrison i woke up one morning to see my affliction was gone, after the third week my husband got a well paid job and official private car. The greatest news came when my doctor told me i was two weeks pregnant, right now we are happy and blessed family everything in my family is perfect. i must say thanks to my friend Sarah, and special thanks to my wonderful Dr. Harrison he is a God sent. My friends are you in any form of problem please don't give up there is solution he did it for me and he will also do it for you. Dr. Harrison is special in spell: for ex-back, good job appointment, promotion at work,increase in business, healing and including HIV disease and protection. contact him now through this email; [email protected] or call him through his phone number +234815674381

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{[email protected]}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster DR benedict. So.

    Doctoryasia try and i contacted him on his email [email protected] and i explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back for me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a lie but i took courage and believed as Doctoryasi has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, apologizing for forgiveness. I forgave him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we are expecting our baby. Doctoryasi is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Doctoryasi on his email on [email protected] at anytime and just visit [email protected] and see so many people testifying about his good and wonderful work.

Looking for a traditional artist to do a light house on my chest I have been to many conventions and realize good work ain't cheap and cheap work ain't good but the only issue is that it's a cover up the good part about that its covering up a tie so it's already got the bold lines that would be in a lighthouse anyway artist hit me up and let me know I am available Saturday and Sunday and think we could probably take best piece of the day thanks

    What the best artist to do sleeves n the prices n do I have to book a spot

  36. How hard is it to get a tattoo on the spot? Do you have to book ahead of time? I want to start my sleeve, and I've been trying to find an artist I like. I would like to scope out the options, but Ive never been to one of these, and I don't know how hard it is to get a chair. Any advice?

  37. Geoffery Von Gore at #

    Poisonous Pinups Magazine will be there with Muerto amor movie

  38. I cannot find it listed on their page at the moment, but last year it was approximately $20.00 for an adult for a day pass. You usually can get a slight discount if you buy a weekend pass. Tattoos are not included in the entry price – you would need to pay the artist individually.

  39. Yes, you would need to pay for any tattoos you get at the convention. Some artists do take walk-ups if they have the availability, but many artists book conventions slots ahead of time. If you have a particular artist you wish to tattoo you, it's recommended that you contact them in advance to see if they have availability for the tattoo you want.

  40. Tom Ruch at #

    How do I book someone for me to get a tattoo at the show ?

  45. My name is Rusty Kate, from UK I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once. when i went to Africa in July this year on a business summit. i ment a man called Dr. OGUDO.He is powerful he could help you cast a spells to bring back my love’s gone,misbehaving lover looking for some one to love you, bring back lost money and magic money spell or spell for a good job.i’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 2 years… i really loved him, but his mother was against me and he had no good paying job. so when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. and in 6 days when i returned to New York, my boyfriend (is now my husband ) he called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married..i didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do… well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got a new job and our lives became much better. in case anyone needs the spell caster for some help, email [email protected] you can see what he can do and i belive that he can do so four you tooo
