Tommy's Tattoo Convention is taking place this weekend at the Connecticut Convention Center.
I went by on Friday afternoon, before the convention began. Sarah and Mikey were hanging out.
Sarah has numerous tattoos, some reflecting her Buddhism and others based on Goth-style
movies that she likes. Mikey has a fascinating left arm illusion tattoo,
with skulls that morph into human figures.
Sarah, Emily and Mike are tattoo artists from Philadelphia. Their tattoos don't have any specific meanings. They just liked the art and thought the tattoos were cool.
Cory is a tattoo artist from Groton, Connecticut. He was fine with being photographed,
but he is a man of few words and didn't want to talk about his tats.
