    Is anyone going to this? It's August 8th-10th. I'm thinking about going to get my arm finished a little quicker. Here's the website: http://www.seattletattooexpo.com/

    Tattoo artists at conventions charge more than they normally would though.

    I'd like to go but I think I'm working that weekend.

    I've never found that to be the case. At any rate, I have an artist that I'm returning to in order to finish a work in progress. Generally, artists stay at the hourly rate that they initially start the piece at. That's always been my experience.

    I'm not sure which conventions you've been to but most don't do that.

    The Vancouver tattoo convention was like that. Artist jacked their rates up about $20/hr.

    the Vancouver convention is no more now.
