I had an epic weekend at the Bay Area Tattoo Convention. So many great artists, books, shirts, prints, tattooing, everywhere. Very overwhelming event, many legends attended this convention, like Jack Rudy, Freddy Corbin, Thom deVita, Shige and the list goes on. It was such an awesome experience. Here is a recap of the day. Enjoy!
