It's just as good as any. But then again, it is a TATTOO convention.

I really don't see a problem with it.  As a piercer, I tend to fade into the background when it comes to any tattoo related events.  It sucks to have to stick to paperwork and cleaning at a convention.  If there were regular body piercing/modification conventions, I wouldn't mind at all.  I like to get recongnized for my work too Smile

I agree, but it's the same for tattooing.  You still have the same risks and the same inconveniences.

There is a convention coming up here and we are renting a booth. It's my first time piercing at a convention so I'm a little nervous! I've done counter help at a convention, and I can already tell my problems are going to be with not having a sink. I guess it may be a pain, but I've heard that the money is definitely worth it.

I think conventions are a great way to network with artists and meet new people. You can build up more clientelle and become known for your work.

most definatly... its just sterility hell. open air makes me nervous and i cant control the enviroment as much as i do in my shop. plus its hard to gauge how much people have been drinking at a show.

The question to always get them with is "How many drinks have you had today??" instead of "Have you been drinking??". I used to work in a shop that was next door to a bar, and they would always admit it immediately without thinking.
