Plymouth Tattoo Convention 2013

May 2013, and time again to visit my favourite tattoo convention of the year, Plymouth!

I really do love this show. Every year it’s got better and I’m so used to working there now it feels natural setting up and getting everything ready as I know what the organisers supply, where the sterilised area is and if I need help, I know someone will always be happy to assist. It’s like a home from home!

Once again I got a great position in the main hall and set everything up on Friday evening, ready for an early start Saturday. A nice change this year was that I got to share my booth with Urban Image owner, Carl, who was great company and made the whole weekend a great laugh.

On Saturday I tattooed a long-standing customer in the area, finally getting more done on her Harry Potter leg piece and in the afternoon I started, and finished a custom pinup girl. On Sunday, I spent most of the day tattooing the lovely Lyn (a member of staff at the convention) who had been wanting a tattoo from me for quite a while.

The bunny I tattooed on her back was entered in to the competition for Best Small Colour tattoo and also Best of Show. Sat nervously in the bar at the end of the day awaiting the competition results I was absolutely over the moon to be runner-up for Best Small Colour but to top off an amazing weekend I also won Best of Show which was awarded by the legend Doc Price!

Another great convention, I’ll see you all next year!
