Where Chefs can talk tattoos and Tattooers can talk food

Paris Tattoo Convention, 2013

So I went to Paris! And not only did I go to Paris with my lovely husband, Taki (and two other couples and a friend; Horiken of State of Grace and his wife Naomi, and Steve Looney of Pacific Soul and his wife Dani and their friend Richard!) but we worked the Paris Tattoo Convention put on by the legendary TinTin. It was an amazing convention, the energy was like a huge party with some serious tattooing going on! There were around 300 artists in a huge multi-leveled complex that used to be a huge morgue in Parisian history, so cool! The convention had everything from cool French rock bands and a huge candy counter to world-class tattooers and over 10,000 of the Parisian public. It was great to see friends we normally only get to see at my husband’s SFO Convention of the Tattoo Arts every October or only if we are in Europe. We made new friends as well, two in particular. Horiken started and finished a whole sleeve on a cool guy named Roman in two days, and we actually hung out with him and his girlfriend, Mathilde, the next day! Everyone had a great time, and this convention was a huge success as far as we were concerned!  Thank you TinTin!!

Here are some photos of the things I and my friends caught on camera from the weekend… Enjoy!
