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.
