NYC Tattoo Convention.jpg
One of my most favorite tattoo conventions is soon upon us, and I'm giving y'all a heads up so you'll join us for another awesome show:  Mark your calendars for the NYC Tattoo Convention, May 18-20, at the historic Roseland Ballroom in the heart of Times Square. Can't get any better than that.

One of my favorite things about the show -- in addition to an impeccably curated list of international artists -- is the feeling you get that there is still indeed a tattoo community. Lots of people trading tattoo stories, picture posing with friends and strangers, and hell, you just may meet your future ex-husband or wife there! Or at least a colorful one-night stand.

Also part of the fun will be performers, tattoo contests, and an array of merch and book sellers ... like me! Look for my table Saturday and Sunday by the stage, where I'll be selling discounted copies of my latest tomes and giving away free N+S buttons and stickers.

And if you don't see me there, I'll probably be by the bar because, ya know ...

Here are some pics below from last year's show. Hope to see you there!

Last week, we posted on the new waxy green doppelganger of our friend Erik Sprague, aka The Lizardman, at Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum in Times Square, and there were plenty of press in attendance to capture his performance.

Erik was recently interviewed on HuffPo's Weird News for a good solid 6:40 minute video. And then this morning, my mom woke up to find on her AOL homepage (the homepage of all moms) this quick and dirty video in which Erik answers the "Why?" question, how he handles stares, and other tidbits. Check it.

[Those at my Color Tattoo Art book party last Saturday were also treated to some lizardy goodness -- particularly our buddy Jonas whom Erik fed french fries...nasally. ]
