went to the 1st singapore tattoo convention yesterday! twas well worth my 18 bucks :D
saw many tattoo artists at work because people were getting their tattoos done in the booths!
even witnessed the art of Sak Yant, a thai buddhist traditional method of tattooing, where the "grandmaster" pokes the design into your skin using a long metal rod.. something i NEVER hope to experience. lol the dude said its a 100 times more painful than normal tattooing!
but the highlight was:
catching a glimpse (more like many glimpses! :P) of CHRIS GARVER from MIAMI INK!!!
:D :D :D
but most of the pics i took were pretty crapola, because i was quite far, and my camera can only zoom in so close :( however later in the evening, charms and i were standing no less than 2 metres away from him!! HEHE nice and up close :d
but we didn't get to meet him.. because of the freakin LONG queue..
we could've had the chance though, and we're still majorly angsty about this.
because if we'd just stayed there like we planned to..WE'D HAVE BEEN THE FIRST IN THE FREAKIN LINE
charms was majorly bummed she didn't get to give him a hug and snap a photo with him..
but anyway.. I bought a poster with his autograph on it, for my dearest emmy! :D (hmm i hope she doesn't chance upon my blog and see this hehe)
hopefully she'll be mighty stoked. its a pretty cool poster! :)
also got a cool s'pore tattoo convention tshirt :D awesomeness... :D the design is so wicked :D
pretty cool convention overall, i thought :D
and one of the tattooists we spoke to said the wrist area was one of the less painful areas because the skin was thick...
maybe things are lookin' up and i can get one in the near future.. :D
(after i've moved out of home though.. because the rents may kill me. or disown me. or just kick me out. hahaha)
i've been wishing for my star..
i saw it in one of the tattoo artist's books!! :( :( how sadd..
