Coming Soon: The 3rd Annual Westchester Tattoo Convention

3rd annual westchester tattoo convention

This October 16, 17, and 18, the 3rd annual Westchester Tattoo Convention will roll into White Plains, NY.  To be held at the Westchester County Center for the Arts, this year’s con will feature a paint-and-sip class, a Miss Inked New York pageant, a seminar on painting with human blood, and of course plenty of tattoo artists showing off their work.

Wait a minute, painting with human blood??

Yes, your read that right.  Surrealist Vincent Castiglia will be holding a seminar called Advanced Techniques in Painting on Watercolor Paper, and The Use of Blood as a Medium.  And yes, he will do a live demonstration where he will collect his own blood and paint with it.  Fucking brutal.  For details on admission to this special event, read more here.
