Dublin Tattoo Convention

Dublin Tattoo Convention 2015

So this year was the 13th International Dublin Tattoo Convention held over the Halloween weekend at the Red Cow Hotel, nightmare to drive to, but great free parking!

Another great event, with tattooists from all over the world, and great entertainment from Blood or Whiskey, Klingonz and loads more. The buzz of all the machines going is always an amazing sound to hear! Unfortunately, I didnt get around to getting anything new myself this time around.

I even dug out the studio – for the first time in 5 years! – but unfortunately people were very reluctant to come in to the booth for a shot so only got a few, but still got some shots of the great tattooists at work. [For those interested 2x Elinchrom D-Lite4’s, one with a 80cm x 80cm soft box, and the other in to a 7ft x 6ft Lastolite Hilite]
