Asheville Tattoo & Piercing Expo 2014

Asheville Tattoo and Piercing Expo

It’s no secret that I am an introvert and left to my own devices I would probably not leave the house let alone drive 700 miles to go hang out in another state at a Convention. But Lil’Tommy is a dear friend and an incredibly persuasive human. He wanted a family reunion, a gathering of friends who don’t normally hang out on the convention circuit anymore. He got exactly that.

It was a great show filled with amazing artists – run the way shows used to be done.

Of course all of that being said…. I do like painting and get damn little time to do it. So this show I brought all of my paints and focused on that. I did make a couple of tattoos, but mostly enjoyed visiting, hanging out and being at a show without any pressure at all.

They used the painting that I had done for them on shirts including onesies – so adorable! Had to get one for the Grandbaby ūüôā
