Yes, many artists will have time available to tattoo either a flash or a custom design.
We recommend that you pre book with artists to avoid missing the chance to get tattooed by one of your favourite artists.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
There’s a chance some artists may do special rates on flash that they are really keen to tattoo, or possibly a discounted day rate.
Each artist sets their rate. So you need to ask what an artist’s rate might be. Tattoos are definitely not free, these artists are the best in the business.
As they say cheap tattoos aren’t good and good tattoos aren’t cheap.
You need to book an appointment directly with artists.
Go to Artist Profiles Page, where you can choose an artist depending on his or her style.
Click view profile and fill-in the contact form, providing enough detail about a tattoo you would like and your contact details. You may even send an image or an artwork in the form. The appropriate artist will be in touch with you directly to discuss your request further.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
We strongly recommend to secure your appointment with an artist well in advance for larger pieces, realistic or custom designed tattoos, this gives artists the time to draw your design prior to the convention.
Many artists are happy to do walk ups throughout the convention. So please look at the artists portfolios and chat directly with them to see if they have availability over the weekend.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
