Thanks for Coming to the 2010 Boston Tattoo Convention!

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!


WAAF Video Interview with Natan!

Follow this link to take a look at the video interview that Mike Hsu, from WAAF, recently conducted with Natan. Tattooing for two decades and contributing heavily to the legalization of tattooing in Massachusetts in the first place, Natan has an experienced and interesting take on the whole industry and art form.

Listen in to hear what he has to say about the right way to go about finding, an artist, getting a tattoo, and how we've been working to make this year's Boston Tattoo Convention the best one yet!


After you take a look at the video, make sure to check out our upcoming international tattoo convention in Boston,, and join us down at the Back Bay Sheraton Hotel over Labor Day Weekend (September 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th). See you in Boston!
