So, Casper and I headed out to Philly last Thursday for the 9th annual Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention. A ten hour road trip, most of which took place on a lonely stretch known as the Pennsylvania Turnpike. But once we arrived in Philly, we knew we were in for a great time.
The town is always hopping, with lots of cool places and some great people. Stopped in at Tattooed Moms, a cool little bar on South Street. Had and official “Philly Chessesteak” from Jeanos. Ran the Rocky steps…. okay, so we actually walked them, and our legs were still burning, he is definitely a bad ass for running those stairs! We also got pics taken with a couple of Stormtroopers and Boba Fet, there was huge Star Wars exhibit going on and these guys were just walking the streets talking with people and posing for pictures.
The convention was amazing! I got to work along side some of the greats in the industry, Bob Tyrell, Robert Pho, Marshall Bennett, Chris Vennekemp and many, many others! There were over 300 artists and lots of cool bands and such.
A hearty thank you to cool ass people in Philadelphia that made this weekend great!
