Tampa Tattoofest 2014 | Boston Tattoo Shop | Tattoo Covention

It was our 3rd year attending the Tampa Tattoofest at the Manatee Convention Center in Palmetto Fl.  Our Boothmates this year once again were Mark Longnecker from Endless Summer Tattoo in Coco Beach fl and On Point Ink in Jacksonville Fl.

We did our usual tampa routine – lunch at the “the Pub“, check into the hotel then off to the convention to get set up

The Convention was alot of fun – tattooing, music, food and suspension shows.  Got tattooed by Bowery Stan Moskowitz – got to hang with him and Crazy Philadelpia Eddie….Heard some amazingly funny stories – would’ve loved to be a fly on the wall during their haydays!!   1st night of the Siesta Inn Tiki Bar after party was dj’d by the one and only DJ Longneck!  We spent most of the nights after the convention hanging with friends Tony Olivas, Loko T, Phillip and Crew from Lucky Draw Tattoo.  The stories from the tiki bar will be told for many years to come!!

We missed our flight on Sunday Night and because of the tornado warnings on Saturday we couldn’t get out until tuesday morning, so we drove out to Clearwater  and got a room at the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa.  We checked out the spa as well as the Tequila Sunrises and Rum Runners at their Tiki Bar…Yes!!

Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand | Guest Tattoo Artist | February 2014

It’s been a crazy month or so around here.  Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand Visited the shop in Boston for a week and a half.  We were blessed to have her, the knowledge and history that’s in her head is absolutely mind blowing – Everything from Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy, Mike Malone to the ancient history of tattooing.  We got a private edition of the voodoo to vogue lecture that she had given at Columbia University
