Event details

OK guys.  We have done this troop a number of times over the past few years and it has always been a great event.  Dolores has advised that they will be making a donation to charity on our behalf as usual.  There will be a secure place to get changed.  She will provide refreshments.  And once she has the numbers she will arrange parking.  We normally attend this event just for the one day but Dolores has said if we wanted to do two days she would be delighted to have us there.  

Here is what the event is all about

What Happens at the Dublin International Tattoo Convention

We bring together people who share an interest in tattoos and piercing. You will have the opportunity to meet and hang out with thousands of other people interested in tattoos! The tattoo culture itself is amazing and full of open-minded people. Great opportunity to get out and actually meet people. Also a chance to network and exchange information on the latest techniques and trends.

There are, booths with products and services, competitions and contests, giveaways, art exhibitions and workshops related to tattoo industry issues. There’s food, drink and entertainment. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details.

And, yes, you can get tattooed and pierced at the convention. If anything, it is one of the best places because you have an opportunity to get tattooed by artists of note who might otherwise be out of reach due to geographical distance or availability. 

Even if you are not sure if you want a tattoo, going to the convention will help you become more comfortable with the process as you can watch tattoos being done and talk to the artists. You might even leave with your very first ink 🙂

 

NOTE: Due to current infection rate, the organisers of the event are letting in only fully vaccinated people. This applies to us as well.

Okay might be only able to attend one of the days as I may have a screening to attend on the Saturday, not 100% sure at the moment as there are only allowed 20-26 people to attend so names may have to be drawn from a hat so should know for definite by this Monday.

Phibsboro finishes at 3pm.  The Tattoo convention goes on till around 8pm so there is no problem if anyone wanted to head over to the RDS afterwards.  No pressure though.

Apologies Dave, and everyone else... but I will have to step down from this event.  Work and family commitments have come up, so I can no longer make it.  Apologies.

Work & family always come first, Keith. No apology needed, brother.

Would it be OK to pop in on this as crew with my daughter for a couple of hours on the Sat? Looks like the perfect opportunity to ease in and reintroduce myself to the Legion

Unfortunately I need to stand down on this one. I've been on bed rest for nearly a week now with an awful dose of something, although thankfully the Covid test came back negative. My fever finally broke yesterday so I'm on the mend, but it's done a serious number on my asthma. I'm gonna have a rasping asthmatic cough for at least another week or two, and in the present climate it would not be appropriate to be out at a public event going into a coughing fit every couple of minutes 😔

Hi everyone. I've finally got my costume shipped and delivered here, so I'd like to join you on Saturday if that's ok for you 🙂

I have a Leia episode 5 final scene costume 😃
