was having a chat with wilD yesterday,and she said it might be a good idea if some members got together for a social day out at a tattoo convention,just wondering who,if anyone, would be interested.

Yeah - what does anyone think?

Any good suggestions - shows/conventions that anyone knows of which may be worth a visit - and anyone interested in meeting up can?

Noticed one in Doncaster in August - anyone been before? Sort of central ish?....

meet up

I'v just seen this thread and think it's a great idea, my wife doesn't do tattooing but she is my best mate and behind me 100%, so are we talking about bringing our partners or coming alone, I would love to come and meet and chat to as many members as possible, but I can't see me leaving my wife at home.

regards
Tony

Looks like there won't be many ladies - so I'd be happy for her to come and join us all:thumbsup: I'll be totally outnumbered otherwise!

meet up

Thanks Dawn, Ange as just said great stuff, her only concern was if she was the only women there, i'm looking forward to meeting everyone, also I had cancer not long ago and it was in my mouth so after all of the treatment I have had, some people don't always understand me, but with Ange being with me for so long she understands everything I say, so I feel better when she is there, once again thanks for the reply.

regards
tony

Can we arrange a date to suit all?

If we are going to go ahead with this meet up guys n gals, any chance we can agree on a date as I need to get it in my diary!! (such a busy lifestyle!):rolleyes:

It's over 3 days, Fri to Sun 5/6/7th and I have just been looking about for hotels - and a few are already booked up.

Found this http://www.hiexpress.com/hotels/us/en/doncaster/dsauk/hoteldetail

only a mile from Doncaster, its brand new - *£41 per night for a double room inc. breakfast for the Sat for example and there is a bar, plus a pub opposite. Just thought it'd be good to be able to meet up say night before - or at the end of the day - for those who are travelling/want to stay over and do a bit of socialising?

How about the Saturday then? Is that OK for everyone?
We can meet up either Sat afternoon - at the show, &/or, get together for a drink Sat night? That way, either day for the show would be ok for those who can't commit to a specific day just yet?

Any thoughts??

Hi all,

I think I am just going to go down on the Saturday with my other half - or my daughter if he's away. I will book to stay if a few of us are going to do the same, as I think it would be good to be able to get tog. in evening for a few shandies!! If not, we'll just head home same day, as I think it's about 2-3 hours from us.

So I have 'ear marked' the Saturday to go - if any of you want to meet up, that would be really great - looking forward to it!

Think there's one on this weekend in Cumbria if anyone is heading across let me know - think I'll try and persuade my other half to go across with me. Am after some inks and a new machine - so curious to have a look around! (Provided there's no snow on A66!!).

I dont know how many of you have been to an exhibition before, but it has a massive let down! You cant go anywhere near the TRADE hall. Which basically means if you want to look at, or purchase ANYTHING to do with tattooing, forget it. Anyone caught selling to you is instantly banned, so they dont even let you stick your head in the trade hall. :angry:

not been to one myself but from what i can gather you just get to walk round and watch different artists in action tattooing people and get to meet different tattoo artists and get their autograph etc if you have any idea who on earth they are :cheesy: to be honest if i was to come id just be coming for the chance to meet fellow forum users and the beer.

The trade hall is what appeals to see what was on offer however unless you are a registered tattooist you cant get in which is a bit of a letdown. :angry:

Hi, I can't make this one as I will be on holiday but would be up for any other meet ups. Are there any people out there in London/the south east who would be up for meeting up in this part of the country?

Hmm, will look into that. There's also one near Tower Bridge in London in September that looks quite big.
