Yesterday, the 17th Annual NYC Tattoo Convention kicked off at the iconic Roseland Ballroom, and there were some amazing works of art walking around the show and being created by the stellar line-up of tattooers in attendance. This is the last time the convention will be held at Roseland before it sadly gets demolished, although the show will be back in new location. Because this convention has held so many great memories in this venue, I'm just taking it all in while I can.

I'll continue to be signing my books today through tomorrow, and also Tweeting and taking pics, which I'll post to Instagram and Flickr.  Meanwhile, I'll leave you here with some photos from yesterday, including Kevin Wilson of Sacred Tattoo modelling his hand tattoo by Peter Walrus (shown above). It was also cool to watch Brent McCown create Pacific Polynesian inspired work by hand, including this piece on Charles Boday's forearm (shown below).

More coming up!
