  19. Tj Smithers the artists are highly sought after. There is a list of artists but not their availability schedule. You will have to pick a realism artist and email them directly as they have no problem finding people. Randy Engelhard "Heaven of Colours"and Mike DeVries I know are both booked. If there is someone in particular you want to get inked by, its a really good idea to follow them on Facebook and bookmark their websites to stay posted. Usually you have to email the same day they announce a new convention and even then you aren't guaranteed to get a spot. They also choose who will fit their time well and who's idea they feel they want to tackle. I wish you lots of luck. You do have to do your own leg work though. Its worth it though.

    Is there a list or something on facebook so I can see who still has openings ? Kind of a shot in the dark messaging a bunch of people.

    The tattoo used to be a mark of guilt or shame imposed on people to advertise their status as criminals and outcasts. It was like wearing a sign that said “victimize me.” Penitentiaries are showcases of skin art. Today, the gallery is expanding to include the world without oppression. I can't wait for this event!
