We're really excited to be doing our first convention in Canada, and even more excited that it's the 20th annual Northern Ink Xposure convention. We'll be there with Pro Team member Saga Anderson. Saga was at Musink a year ago when we met him. He's incredibly talented, humble, and a pleasure to talk to and be around.
Musink is the first convention we ever attended, at the invitation of friend and Pro Team member Vic Back. This will be our third year now, and we couldn't be more excited. We'll be joined by our friends Erin Campbell and Cory Cartwright. Last year we were so busy we didn't get to catch any of the performances, but between the lineup of artists and performers this is a can't miss event.
We had a blast last year at the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention by Villain Arts. This is where we met now Pro Team member Alisha Harding (as well as many other amazing tattoo artists). We'll be set up alongside her and her shop Relic, and have other Pro Team members Vic Back and Ruby Gore in tow. I can't wait for more vegan Philly cheesesteaks!
We're very excited to be traveling to our nation's capital for the DC Tattoo Expo. We were invited there by season 9 Ink Master Shop Wars participants Ulyss Blair and Eva Huber. We met them both at this past Seattle Tattoo Convention where Eva tattooed our very own Frankie Lee Von. We're excited to be able to kick it with you two!
Left is a dope collaboration between Eva and Ulyss. Looking forward to the event, and thanks for the invite!

Chattanooga is one of my favorite places on the planet. This is no hyperbole. I spent six months living there and rock climbing in the beginning of 2012. I made so many good friends there and unfortunately haven't been back since moving to Salt Lake City. So I'm definitely excited for Tattanooga in April.
My best friend Hannah introduced me to (one of) her tattoo artist Chad Newsome by way of Instagram. And I'm really excited to be sharing a booth with him there. He's a rad guy and he makes some really rad tattoos.
I'm excited for our first East Coast convention, which will be the 19th annual Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention being put on by Villain Arts. I grew up in the northeast, but left there about five years ago. I've never been to Philadelphia, and while SecondSkin already has a large presence here on the west coast, I'm looking forward to getting some east coast exposure.
Sponsored artist Ben Ochoa will be in the booth, along with a couple of other artists who I'm just waiting on confirmation from. Collectors stop by to get your tattoo wrapped, or artists to pick up a sample. Thanks y'all!
