I wasnt able to get any tattoo equipment because you have to be licensed here in Virginia :( but I did talk with a friend of mine who tattoos at UBX Tattoo Shop and she introduced me to the owner and Im hoping to get an apprenticeship soon. (Im keeping my fingers crossed) I met with him today and showed some of my artwork, I hope it was enough to want to take me on as an apprentice. ahhhhh we'll see.
Here is some pictures, just a few I snapped. There were cars and motorcycles on display. There was a pinstripper there too and many other artists there showing off their art.

I love the artist we had draw us. The lil touches such as the lightening bolt actually bolted down in my head..... priceless. You can check out their website at http://www.zombiecaricatures.com/.
The rest of the expo was fun and interesting. There was a Pin Up Girl contest, and wrestling, live bands and a dj keeping the energy going. Ami James from NY INK was there too signing autographs. It was an all around good time for me and Jermie. I hope to go next year too. I am glad that it is finally coming to my neck of tthe woods and I dont have to travel outside of the 7 cities to attend one. hahahaha
I bought some jewelry too from some of the local boutiques too.Ill blog about them in my next post! I just wanted to share some pics I took. Thanks for stoppin by! See you in the next post!
