    Please enter me into the contest to win tickets! I have a tat that needs fixin’ and that is the place to talk to several artists at the same time for just how to go about it. Thank you!

    I would love these tickets as I am a heavily tattooed individual who wants to spend money at the convention and the less I have to pay to get in the more I can spend. I might be able to get a painting and a tattoo, or a sketchbook from myke chambers(the guy in the picture of this post). I spend all my disposable income on tattoos, books about tattoos, and traveling to get tattooed. This would really make my week.

  3. Sara October 4, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    Hell Yes! Everyone in my family is tattooed and my bf is looking for an artist. :D

  4. Jon Newton October 4, 2012 at 11:18 am #

  34. Zoe October 5, 2012 at 9:11 am #

    I need to plan my first sleeve and this would be the PERFECT opportunity to meet several different artists to decide who I want to do it. My friend really really wants to come with to plan his sleeve too, but he lives in Seattle. If I won a pair of free tickets, he would totally come out and be able to come with me. Please please please! This would mean so much.

    been in portland sixteen years. tattoo-less. must…get…tattooed…

  36. Lauryn October 5, 2012 at 10:52 am #

    Three years ago I attended the show and got the tattoo I had wanted for a long time. It was a wonderful experience and I am now wanting to take my best friend to help him find an artist to cover up a piece that reminds him of a painful past. We could really benefit from free tickets.

  37. Shanelle Eilers October 5, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    i dont even know where to start how dope it would be to win this! Id definitly have to bring all my girlfriends! Iv been planning my tatoos for quite some time just couldnt decide who to get it done by!

  42. Andi October 5, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I have an appointment for my amazing artist to work on my sleeve that is in progress on Friday at the Convention. Paying him every cent he’s worth! If I didn’t have to buy a ticket, the extra cash would go to him. See ya there either way!

  43. Kasee October 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    I would love to win tickets, I only have one tat and I’m looking for someone to put a bird on it!

  45. CJ October 6, 2012 at 5:26 am #

    I have been waiting for nearly four years to finish my only tattoo which I started nearly four years ago and haven’t been able to have any work done on it since. I’d love to win tickets so I can finally, finally finish the piece and still be able to pay to care for my cat’s vet bills! He has feline leukemia (among other issues) & his vet care is the main reason why I haven’t been able to afford to finish or even add to my tattoo. Thank you!!!

  46. Lynnette October 6, 2012 at 8:17 am #

    Tattoos rock! I would love to get into this event! Pick me :)

  47. Tracy Loughridge October 6, 2012 at 10:08 am #

  48. csquite October 6, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

    I would love to attend! I haven’t been to a convention in years and have a few pieces dreamed up. This is the make a wish foundation, right?

  49. jannie Racette October 6, 2012 at 8:10 pm #

    LOTS OF AWESOME ARTISTS in one building may be dangerous. hahaha! Will be there for skin art!

  50. Dharma Castillo October 7, 2012 at 1:49 am #

    Hey I would love to win tickets to go to the expo because two of my favorite artist are going to be there Gustavo R. and tattoo artist Alex Garcia. I have been trying to get ahold of Alex but have yet to make contact I am praying he will be able to tattoo me. I live and breathe for art and I have never been to a tattoo expo before. I know it’s going to be amazing and since I live paycheck to paycheck getting a free ticket would be too cool.

  51. Brian Christopher October 7, 2012 at 2:56 am #

    I’ve been a blank canvas long enough!

  52. birdonit October 7, 2012 at 11:11 am #
