Last weekend we all packed up our kits, locked the doors, changed the voicemails, and headed down to the 2010 Boston Tattoo Convention. Produced by Witch City Ink and Lightwave Tattoos owner/artist, Natan Alexander, and managed by Witch City Ink apprentice, Micah R. O. Litant, this year's show marked our 9th consecutive convention and our first major move as we relocated up to the Back Bay Sheraton Hotel and expanded to a full four days.
Each year, we welcome hundreds of artists from around the country and world, a wide array of vendors, performers, entertainers, and the general public to join us for a celebration and exhibition of the art-form of tattooing. With li
ve tattooing (including traditional tebori hand-poke methods by Horimyo), shopping, burlesque performers, mixed martial arts demonstrations, our annual art gallery, and daily tattoo contests, we had a packed schedule for the entirety of the Labor Day weekend.
Stay tuned as we post all of our coverage from the show on our website, our facebook, twitter, and myspace and join us next year over Labor Day Weekend 2011, back at the Sheraton Hotel, for our 10th Annual Boston Tattoo Convention!
Thank you to all of the artists, vendors, and tattoo fans who showed up, supported the show, and helped us show Boston all that tattooing has to offer. We'll see you all next year!
