Red Light Visions

No, not another work trip to Amsterdam.

Instead it was another awesome visit to the International London Tattoo Convention. I already posted up some bits, so I'll just say a few words and leave you to watch the video and see the photos.

I planned to go all out and snap happy, but really it just doesn't seem to be my thing. I got a couple photos and a few poses with people I admire. You really just need to get up off your ass and come to next year's weekend and catch it for yourself.

The weather was glorious. Each year the venue seems to open up space wise a little bit more. The food court was much much better (photo of wifey chomping on a burrito is proof). The merchants stalls are pretty much the same, some nice bits and pieces. With regards to tees, as you'd expect there was Sullen and Rebel 8 all over the place. Footwear of choice for the punters seemed to be Vans, Cons, DMs and surprisingly Nike Air Max 1s. Go figure.

I didn't catch any of the entertainment, nor any Suicide Girls or calendar models. And the only live band I heard sounded sh1t. They can work on that for next year hopefully.

And of course, I got to sit with Chuey and for a longer session that originally planned. He was literally the last artist at the event still working, and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. I can't say enough good things about this guy, as an artist and a man. Can't wait to see him again.

Now, enjoy the few photos and video clip. I did think about filming more, but you know what, I felt like just enjoying the moment. Maybe next time. Peace.
