Contest time change

So, they changed Saturday’s contest time from registration to 3pm. That means your form has to be filled out and handed in by 3. Last year my client tried to turn it in 5 minutes late and was turned away. So please make sure to show up by 2:30 to be safe. I appreciate everyone who is going to enter a contest and don’t forget to check out the info on the gift certificates that you can win.

Bookings, waiting list and Expo

So as of right now, Josh is taking appointments weekly and walk in’s on Saturdays.  James and Stina’s books are now closed and will be reopening in a month to begin booking for October.  If you’d like an appointment in October or November, Please fill out a consult form on our website and we will get back to you when we can.  We are excited to work with everyone, but please keep in mind that we are only able to help so many people.  Our lists can get long and e-mails can get backed up.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to skip the list, we are working at the Manchester Live free or die tattoo Expo.  James and Stina will have books of custom designs and one -offs.  Pop over on Saturday, enter a contest, and get a tattoo!

Live Free Or Die Tattoo Expo. Buy tickets here http://www.livefreeordietattooexpo.com/tickets/

What’s a tattoo expo? A tattoo expo, or convention is usually a huge hall/center that’s filled with little booths that artists rent out to work. You can walk around and see hundreds of tattooers at work. There are usually little stores with fun crafts, jewelry or clothing to buy. There are live shows, and contests for tattoos. It’s a great place to walk around and show off your tattoos, look at other’s tattoos, find some new art, get a new tattoo, see artists at work (just like ink master!) and enter contests where judges judge your tattoos on a point system.

We will be taking some appointments and we will each have a little walk in time. Right now, James has Sunday July 24th open for an appointment and Stina and James both have time on that Friday. Feel free to message.

So here’s the low down. Every year we ask people to go and enter contests and every year, maybe 5 people enter. We get it, life is busy. But we really appreciate when you guys enter your tattoos because then we both win. This year we are asking you to come enter a contest and we’ll give you a $10 gift certificate just to enter each category. If you win 2nd place you’ll get a $50 gift certificate. If you win first place, you’ll get a $100 certificate. There are about 18 different categories and you can enter multiple. Also, some of these contests have small, medium and large, so that’s more chances to win.

Here’s the schedule:

Friday July 22nd- opens at 5pm. Closed midnight.

Contest registration by 10:30, contest judging at 11:30 for Best cover up (bring a photo of before, and if you don’t have it, ask me, we do!), Half sleeve (We’ve done a ton of half sleeves this year!), Traditional Tattoo ( Ok guys, hardly anyone enters this and every time one of our clients enter, they win. Please please enter), Best lettering or script, and best tattoo done that day.

Saturday July 23- opens at 10am. Closed midnight.

Contest registration by 2:30pm and contest starts at 4pm. Black and grey small, medium and large. (Listen guys, James has been doing so so much black and grey PLEASE come and enter!!) Best color, Small, medium and large. (Again, Stina has been doing a ton of color pieces. Even if your tattoo is small, please please enter!), Best Color Portrait (bring original photo), Best Black and grey portrait (bring original photo. and James has done a few of these this year.), Realism, Horror Color, Horro Black and Grey, and Tattoo of the day.

Sunday July 24- opens at 10am. Closed 6pm.

Registration by 4pm. Contests start at 5pm. Best arm or leg sleeve. (Again, we’ve done a few this year!!) Best chest piece, best back piece, best overall body tattoo, Tattoo of the day.

Happy 4th of July!

WE ARE CLOSED SAT JULY 2nd AND REOPEN WED JULY 6th!!! Thank you, and Happy 4th of July. (Ps. We can NOT tattoo on a sunburn!)

E-mail and appointments

Hey everyone, I just wanted to touch base with you all because this is the time of year we get a LOT of email. Generally I book myself about 4 hours a week to answer e-mail, and unfortunately right around the beginning of summer we get overwhelmed.  I answered e-mail for about 8 hours last week and it barely made a dent. I’ve been trying to keep up but after being away for a couple days of work, I’m sadly further behind than normal.  I AM going to answer everyone! It just takes some time.

That being said, Josh is open for appointments.  He is at the end of his apprenticeship so his skills are pretty great. If you’d like to book an appointment with Josh for his discounted apprentice rates, hurry! He will no longer be doing apprentice rates in July.  Fill out an appointment form, describe your idea and Josh will get back to you ASAP.

James and Stina are currently putting people on a waiting list for August. We are happy to work with you, but if you do not want to wait you’re welcome to book with Josh, or we could try to recommend another studio.  Please understand that most reputable shops are going to have some sort of waiting list right now, though.

Thanks for everyone’s patience! We look forward to working with everyone!

-Stina
