Ink Traveler's convention

Just got back from the Vancouver, WA Ink Traveler's tattoo convention. It was awesome! I got to see Todd, and Sean, and the crew at Imperial...I hung out with Cain and Will from spiderr Monkey a bit...and Pedro and Tim from Optic Nerve. I also got the opportunity to try out the neuma machines, thanks to my new friends at Sideshow Tattoos. I watched Desta from Adorn pound some jello shots, Erich won best flash, Splat won best tribal, it was an awesome weekend all round...then of course crab shack on sunday night...

On Friday I did a really fun tattoo on Levi, who is a really cool kid and awesome client. On sunday I used the nuemas to do a tiny piece on Sean. I sold some art.,..I didn't work too much or make much money, but I had such a great time...I was being lazy haha

Here are some pictures, for you to enjoy...click read more to see them.
