      Manchester has a wonderful art gallery. We could vsit that for a bit, if people want to.
      I can also show people the only shop I have ever found that sells second hand dildos (and vintage LPs and books).

      Very nicely priced and seems to have a good selection for the vegesaurus members :)

      restaurant sounds really good

      think the 2nd hand dildo place shut down but will check - wasn't that keen in it when went in before (had seen a really good fashion show put on by the team at an early Manchester tattoo convention)

      I'd maybe suggest a wander round Afflecks as there are some nice independent shops there and is near the really well know piercing shop that I can't remember the name of right now. Brain no work-ie today.

      It might be something as basic as a lip piercing or an ear one. Would love to get my ears scalpeled but not sure if I could take it - would also need to get it checked in person first to discuss what size I could go to and then possible order in a tunnel or plug in the right size. One ear is thinish at the bottom, the other was a struggle going from 2.4mm to 3mm after several years at that size.

      Quite possibly, however, if someone would like some subdermal work (from Maccy since I am untrained in these procedures as of yet), then I have no problem w/ letting him at it (as long as he's willing to do so obviously). Anything else though (work wise) keep me posted people as Ill be one broke panda by the time I get into the UK. Thanks

      I think the issue is more of a where to do it.

      Im sorting space for Jonz, but there's only room for 1 artist to work. With having a photographer also there( Laura should be providing info of that soon), it's gonna be pretty packed!

      That would be part of the issue that was brought up to me recently as well Andy.  I'm hoping to possibly look into a shop or two around the immediate Manchester area for people wanting work at the meet. I (personally/to an extent) don't care where I work at that time just as long as people can get the work they want. Any people having suggestions for shops in/immediately around the Manchester area that wouldn't mind me workin out of would be most helpful as well. Nod

      Now so sure about the strip club, but I like the sound of some of those museums though (I love science! :) )
      Perhaps this could be something people could do who aren't getting mod work done on the Saturday?

      Surely those getting mods don't need to be present for when other people are? Its going to take a fair while to get through everyone who wants work with only Jonz and Andy working?

      We need to organise a time for the photoshoot. This way people can go sightseeing in manchester if they wish?

      Me and Si want to see the science museum and such other things that Keiran mentioned, this hasn't been accounted for - spending a day in liverpool and having the meet in manchester seems a bit redundant?

      Whilst I am possibly a driver, it must be taken into account this is a 88mile round trip and petrol is not cheap right now £1.29/litre. The estimated cost of this journey will be about £20 and then parking on top of that. So a equal sharing of petrol costs would be greatly appreciated as I'm only a student.

      The reason I have put POSSIBLY a driver is that I would personally like to see a bit of manchester - museums etc so I won't be planning to come to liverpool until later in the day. Watching people get modded doesn't necessarily appeal to me.

      I have space for 2 more people in my car (me and si - i only have a 4 seater) so if anyone is up for museums or looking around manchester give me a pm and we can organise it.

      Edit: P.S Museums are free for those less financially fortunate :)

      firstly Southport isnt Liverpool :P

      secondly, i agree that people not wanting to take part in having work done, or being photographed.....dont really need to go.

      i guess its entirely upto people to decide if they wanna travel on the sat, or stick in manchester.

      maybe get a show of hands for who wants to do what i suppose.....seeing as some people dont really voice what they wanna do!

      Maddi - as discussed on the phone.. Petrol money would obviously be shared out.

      We are all arriving earlier on friday so will explore then before having a meal. As i was made aware, people wanted to do that. Then leave saturday for the work, photoshoot and clubby happy times. As far as im aware, when I spoke to each member on the phone today.. they were happy with this and everything was fine. I have taken all of that into account.

      If you want, as a possible driver, ill shift lucie may and Onega into another car and you can then explore saturday with Si if you wish and meet up for the rest of the photoshoot later.

      Its not just a photoshoot we can class in a specific time frame.
      Lots of people want lots of pictures. Itll be getting done whilst work is also being done too.

As far as im aware, when I spoke to each member on the phone today.. they were happy with this and everything was fine.

      If you want, as a possible driver, ill shift lucie may and Onega into another car and you can then explore saturday with Si if you wish and meet up for the rest of the photoshoot later.

      Its not just a photoshoot we can class in a specific time frame.
      Lots of people want lots of pictures. Itll be getting done whilst work is also being done too.


      this does sound like a good plan to me

      Ok, let's not get pissy about this

      Saying me and Maddi should just go off and do our own thing is just plain rude in my mind.

      I, for one, was never told about plans on the Friday other than meeting up for dinner. There's nothing in this thread about that and it hasn't been mentioned in any PMs to me.
      Also, Maddi won't be there for a large part of Friday because she gets to have fun playing with lambs (I may be slightly jealous ;) )

      So seeing as we're still in Manchester on the Sunday perhaps we could go see stuff on that day instead? That way we will still be able to be sociable with everyone rather than being told to just go off on our own....

      Personally though I honestly still don't see the need to hang around in Andy's studio when I won't be getting any mod work done, and I'm not keen on having photos taken of me at the best of times....

      And in relation to that, Andy how big is your studio? Can you fit 30 plus people in there comfortably?

      I'm sorry if this comes across wrong... I'm rubbish at expressing myself in text... It's really not meant to piss anyone off

      Personally, i figure if majority wanna do something and others don't wanna, then no one is forcing anyone to do what the rest want/don't want. that goes for all the days of the meet. I personally don't care much about doing touristy stuff - i can stay home and watch documentaries for that. Not saying i don't appreciate them, but if i travel to meet friends, then that takes the main priority.

      I'm game to go with the flow, though my Sunday is pretty much planned already, so I can safely say i wouldn't be game for anything other than what is already planned on Sunday.

      p.s. i don't see the rudeness you refer to, nor anyone being pissy. i see it as debate

      You must understand, Everyone was spoken to about this. No, i have yet to speak to you about this however.  This is a continuation of another thread. If you look through that one, you will see the plans. This one was an updated one with names and everything. Set details.

      Everyone leaves sunday. A lot leave quite early. There will be ferrying between train and airports to do. Exploring sunday is quite impossible when everyone is leaving at different times and people have to do drop offs. Everyone bar Maddi and design are arriving earlier on friday. Quite a few arrive thursday. We have to suit plans to the greater majority. Everyone bar 2 arrive earlier on friday so its the best time to have exploring fun.

      I only said You can do as you wish because you 2 were the only 2 people who disliked the arrangement of events. Everyone else so far has yet to complain.

      Your part of the photoshoot was covered. If you do not wish to take apart then fair enough. However, it is a meet and this is quite a fun thing to do. Were gonna get all the lads in Comical boxers for some piccies etc. Its up to you. If you do not wish to I wont press you. Everyone else is infact up for it and are looking forward to it also. If you do not want pictures taken then you should come along for the sheer laughs and banter.

      I have put a lot into this, and thought everything through. Its not particularly easy. I apologise if my previous post came off as pissy.

      Its just, I spoke to maddi on the phone and everything seemed fine. Then i come back to a post on here with upsets..

      This meet is not how I expected.
      I am hurt by the suggestion that me and Si just go off on our own.
      That is not what Bodymod is about and its not what a meet is about.

      This meet is costing me a lot of money that I cannot earn back as easily as some other people (I can only get one shift per week at the bar £20 a week)

      So I've already spent £38 on the hostel...then the £15 to get to Manchester, plus food and drink - £40?....then the £20 to get to Southport and back....then getting back to uni again is £15

      £128 is ALOT of money. it would take me about 6 weeks to earn back.

      Laura is basically saying I am free to do as I like...but i won't get to spend time with anyone at the meet...pointless? this puts me in a completely horrible situation. I cannot turn up early on friday as i have commitments, so i miss friday fun. and a photoshoot just so everyone can see the lads in their boxers seems a bit unappealing. No offence to bmod guys.

      I would be willing to spend that sort of money for a meet where I get to see people and am not almost forced to make the decision between meeting people or spending the whole time on my own

      However. Surely there are people at the meet that DON'T need to rush off on Sunday? There can be ferrying around of people to stations and airports etc. But also people who just want to have a look around?

      That's all I have to say on the matter. I'm not saying I won't come to the meet because I do still want to see people I regard as friends on here.

      I will be happy to drive on the Saturday if there are going to be any people on the Sunday willing to stick around for me to spend time with?

      Laura I'm sorry I've pissed you off and I know it's hard to organise a meet - I'm sure it'll be great fun on the day

      Its not about you and Si going off on your own.

      All I was saying is that you 2 are the only ones who had problems with the plans. So if you wish to still explore on saturday your welcome too. Its not about telling you to to fuck off on yer own.

      Im saying, you can chose to do which every you like. Im not going to force anyone to do anything.

      The photoshoot is more than seeing the boys in their boxers. Its about having an ass tonne of fabby pictures of us all together. groups, couples etc etc. The boxers one is just a laugh.

      If you wanna explore sunday, go for it. Im just saying a lot of people have to leave as they have transport booked home.

      Im not pissed off with you. x

      If it means some other people with cars can have more time at the meet on Sunday I am willing to spend the day taking people to train stations and airports as often as required, for the whole day if needs be. My car is pretty cheap to run so I can pay for my own fuel and do not mind if people can not afford to give me any fuel money. I am also reasonably familiar with the road system of Greater Manchester and the M62 so I will be able to do this reasonably efficiently.

      There are also a few musuems in Southport if anyone wants to leave the studio for an hour or two but does not want to be too far from the rest of us and all the fun we will be having.

      This will be a great meet-up.

      i think everyones getting very much confused by whats happening......the way i saw it was

      Friday night there would be food and social stuff....

      the sat....there was people having work done, and people wanting to do 'touristy' stuff. even if the mod stuff was being done at the hostel...thats stil 2 different groups of people anyway...

      so doing it in a studio isnt really dividing the people at all...its just putting the mods into a sterile environment.

      people who dont want to get work done, or be photographed, arent being forced to travel, or shunned by not travelling...they can do whatever sightseeing etc they want.

      ALSO....once all the 'work' and pics are done....its still gonna be saturday! the partying, drinking, social stuff can continue in Manc then.

      This is my first meet, and id like to get to know everyone, and intend to try just that, and i think i will have ample time over the weekend to do so

      If people are heading over to Southport/ Sefton then have a gander at Antony Gormley's work on Crosby beach, it's quite amazing!

      also, if people are heading more towards Liverpool let me know and I'll give you a shout out of galleries and artists studios to visit if you're that way inclined.

      Major updates people!
       
      MrJonz is no longer attending this event.
      All work has to be cancelled. Sorry.
      Blame customs! FUCKING SCUMAGS.
       
       
      Photoshoot:
       
      The venue for the photoshoot has changed.
      It will now take place at " http://www.tipped.co.uk/listings/29537/the-waldorf-hotel - The Waldorf "
      The room is booked 12md - 4pm.
       
      Its only round the corner from the hostel. All you folks save money as no one needs to travel through to southport anymore. I suppose thats handy. Although, no more lawnmower museum! Manchester can put up with us a bit longer!
       
      Everything else should still run the same.

      So Im still terribly disappointed that I'm not able to go, but have givin it a day to 'calm down' so that I can explain exactly why this came to be.  Im not lookin for sympathy or anything of the type; just informing people and also the hopes that no one else has to go thru the bullshit I ensued.

        The 1st part was tryin to get my passport on time.  I applied while still on the road in Montana over 3 months ago.  Gave the office all the necessary paperwork that I thought they needed.  Week before I return to Cali I gets a call from my mom that she received a packet from the passport people saying because I didnt have a DL, just a state ID, I needed to send them LOTS of extra info basically proving who I am (this wudve been nice to know when I 1st applied for the goddamn thing @ the post office! Shakes%20Fist).  So upon my return I fill out all the forms, send them back in, and was told to include a letter asking for it to be expedited cuz it was gettin closer to my date of travel.  Then I call the next day and they say I need to send another $75 to get it expedited (again, nice to know at the time n not after). So I shell out even MORE money for that, and it comes down to the week before until I FINALLY got it in the mail.  So Im filled w/ relief and dont have anything else to worry about right??

      Nope.  I get a call from Laura VERY early the morning of my flight saying that for some reason (either I insured the package for too much or it was too heavy or w/e) that to accept it Andy had to pay 150 pounds to customs. This box contained my ECU, all needles and scalpels.  This money would have been the majority of what I made at the meet.  So basically Id have to start all over again tryin to earn that money back upon what I needed to get to buy my return ticket to the states.

        I call the airline and tell them I couldnt travel cuz my 'visa didnt get there on time and my package of supplies was denied by customs'.  They say I have to call the agency I purchased it thru (priceline) to get refunded (by the way i DID purchase the flight insurance just in case sum b/s like this happened).  Then they tell me I have to call the insurance agency to get refunded. Then the insurance agency told me (because of what Ive told all those ppl over the phone and that shit's recorded) that I have to call the embassy and get a notification of denial of work visa; or else I lose the entire lot I spent on my 1-way ticket (btw they wont hold my ticket and/or be able to use it towards a later flight thru the same airline). 

        So I could have just said fuck it to all, gotten on my flight when i needed to, and hoped for the best.  However, I still had the rest of my supplies (quite a bit) that I was goin to put in my checked bag under the plane.  Basically taking a HUGE chance assuming that not only I could repay the cost of customs on the package, and get thru customs myself when I got there, and made enough money to get back to the states asap.  Unfortunately this was just too many "ifs" for me so I had to 'cut my losses' and basically canceled my plans to go overseas.

        Now for the better news in this whole shit fest. I am SOOOOOOO truly happy and grateful that Laura and Andy actually took the time out to call me and inform me of exactly what was going on. If I didnt know what I did after they called, I would've potentially been fucked over even more goin over there thinkin everything was ok. 

      On top of that, I HAVE to give an extra special thanx to my new shop, Urban Body, for not only hiring me on, but letting me work this past weekend. If it wasn't for them, Id be fucked off; literally. I spent damn near all I had to get to the UK, and if I didnt have this shop to fall back/look forward to working at full time; Id have been broke n jobless.  Lets say that this is the 1st shop I will have ever worked for that will truly appreciate me for the hard working artist i am, which is quite refreshing from those of you who know what Ive dealt with in this industry.

       So to all those who were lookin forward to meeting me; I truly am sorry beyond belief, but as some can tell you, I literally did EVERYTHING I could to try to make this trip happen.  Been lookin forward to it for months.  And believe me, no one's as disappointed about this more than I. SO dont you all go feelin too bad though.  You still have all each other to hang with and make it a great weekend indeed.  Ill just have to wait until later to make my journey overseas to Europe.  So until then, I wish you all amazing times this weekend, be safe, live it up, and I look forward to meeting you all soon one day.  Ros, Laura n Keiran, I shall be seein you all at skind for sure!! Not a chance in hell Ill be missin that.

      Jonz I'm really sad that I won't get to meet you yet. Hopefully one day I'll make it to the states for SkinD as I'd love to get work done by you.
