Hi kawaii + creative family,
I wanted to share some photo spam from my first visit to my dream convention, King of Tattoo ~
I have never been huge on working at a tattoo convention.
It often seems more troublesome than not with finding and connecting with (new) clients, prepping tattoos apart from your canvas, packing, unpacking, forgetting things, UGH
That is, until I visited Tokyo’s King of Tattoo. ^.^
Enjoy an adventure with me ~
🌸 Around King of Tattoo
KoT is such a small convention with big HEART!
🌸Artists at Work
Tattoo competitions are huge part of any convention.
It’s such a great educational tool for staying fresh in your craft.
It was crowded so, I only sat for a free lesson in girls’ tattoos ~
Yakuza often gather for festivals donning their body art and tattoo tradition.
They gave the audience a peek into that tradition in a small osake ritual ~
such a beautiful display of commitment
I left the stage a bit … tipsy 😅
Lucky me, I got to hang out with tattoo family and new customers.
So I didn’t feel so … alone ~
King of Tattoo was so much fun! I can’t wait until next year <3
I hope you enjoyed my adventure and as always,
Thans for reading!
