This week the Tattoo Lou's blog is dedicated to this weekend's United Ink tattoo and body art convention taking over Nassau Coliseum for three days of art, fun and rock 'n roll. Each day we'll be listing one of the top 5 reasons you will give anything to be there or regret it for the rest of your life!
Let's step back for a second and review. You have wall-to-wall vendors including a laundry list of the most celebrated names in the body art industry. You have burlesque, magic, music, art galleries, a beauty pageant, contests and endless other entertainment options. You have killer after parties that will keep United Ink rocking long after the expo closes for the night. You have The United Ink Awards and Official Tattoo Hall of Fame Ceremony (in case we failed to mention it 150 times), and there's even more. MORE you say?? Yes, didn't you hear us? Don't make us repeat ourselves more than we already are. Did we mention the LOUNGES, awesome places to sit, relax, have a drink, sign up for contests and enjoy live entertainment?? No?! Click on the link to find out more, but ultimately the only way to experience just how incredible all of this is going to be is to BE THERE!!
So, repeat after Tattoo Lou's:
"I ______, being the awesome, rocking, body art loving guy/girl that I am, do solemnly swear to be at Nassau Coliseum for United Ink, the biggest, baddest and best body art convention the world has ever known. I further pledge to party my ass off with no regard for work on Monday, and to make this the best three days of my life including marriages and births of children, though I reserve the right to lie about that to those I love in order to maintain a peaceful and harmonious home life."
