New Orleans Tattoo Expo :: EXPO

New Orleans Tattoo Expo

We came to New Orleans for the week of Halloween, and we both had small phrases we wanted tattooed, hers in my writing and mine in my grandmother's. I did as much research as possible, and based on what I saw on here, I picked Downtown. I emailed them a few days prior to the start of the trip and didn't hear back, which made me nervous (since I had no concept of their schedule, and I wanted to make sure to get an appointment!), so I called when I got into town.

I want to say it was Katie that I initially spoke to, though I'm not sure, and she was incredibly sweet and courteous (I've had tattoos in multiple cities, and it's not an attitude I've come to expect). She told me just to stop by, that there might be a short waiting time, but I didn't need an appointment. We headed over around 7 pm or so, and we were in and out within fifteen minutes.

We showed her the pieces we wanted, and she didn't ask any questions (another attitude I've come across all too often is judgment...they want to change your idea a bit too much for comfort). She offered size suggestions (that ended up being perfect) and just like that, we sat down and began. Kenny is the artist I ended up with, and he's fantastic. Friendly and skilled. I wish I had more detailed praise, but the tattoo was very simple. The color and placement worked out wonderfully, and it's healing very well.

Also, the prices! So reasonable! I was prepared to pay much more, but my mom's ended up being $50, and mine $60. It was a very pleasant surprise.

In between competitions, we performed for thousands of people at venues such as the Twin Cities Pet Expo. After shows and competitions, many of the families would stick around to meet and pet the dogs.
