Art that adorns the flesh…

A Weekend in Philly

February 3rd, 2011 by

If you’re like me and happen to live in a place that isn’t particularly warm around this time of year, you might find that February is the month where winter really sticks it to you.  It typically seems like February is the month where winter has seriously overstayed its welcome and all anyone wants is for it to go away so we can get into spring and ultimately summer.  Depending on the level of winter that your city experiences, there tends to be much staying indoors and not a lot going on.

Well, this weekend if you happen to live in or near the City of Brotherly Love (that’s Philadelphia for those of you who don’t know), there’s a great tattoo convention going on that will get you up and out of the house and into a weekend of tattoo related madness.  It’s a tattoo extravaganza!!…okay sorry, that was lame.  But seriously, it’s going to be a great time and probably shouldn’t be missed.

The Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention will take place this weekend (February 4th-6th) at the Sheraton Philadelphia City Center Hotel.  There will tons of bands, performances, seminars, contests, vendors and certainly many, many tattooists like Chris Nunez, Dan Henk, Myke Chambers and Scott Sylvia.  Plus the Philadelphia scene is well represented and it’s all shaping up to be one hell of weekend.

If you plan on traveling into Philadelphia for the convention, you can get set up with a discounted room for $146 per night at the Sheraton if you mention the convention when you book.  Other than that, tickets for the convention are $20 a day or $40 for the weekend.  There will also be plenty of tattoo magazines on site, so you could potentially get your own tattoos photographed and put into print.

Now isn’t all that much better than sitting at home this weekend, playing XBox?  Check out all the info here.
