    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

  31. Lauren Nicoletto 19 January 2015 at 21:34 - Reply

    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?

  33. Desirée Isphording 12 January 2015 at 18:42 - Reply

    Absolutely.

  34. Desirée Isphording 12 January 2015 at 18:41 - Reply

    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.

  35. Desirée Isphording 12 January 2015 at 18:38 - Reply

    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.

  36. Tom Ruch 11 January 2015 at 22:55 - Reply

    Do I have to pay for tattoos there? Are they walk ins or do I have to talk to artists ahead of time?

  41. Rusty Kate 15 November 2014 at 02:59 - Reply

    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 him..at 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 drogudospelltemple@gmail.com you can see what he can do and i belive that he can do so four you tooo

Something small as a symbol of our love for each other ( we've been together 26 years). Any artist interested? We will be at the show around 4 pm on Sunday. Should we come there or to your shop? This would be a surprise for his birthday. Thank you in advance!

    Just show up. I get work done at conventions quite a bit. Most of the time you have to set up ahead of schedule with the artist you have in mind (especially the hi profile ones) then you discuss about getting the work done at the convention…
