    I'm very interested in attending, especially since I live nearby. XD

    Anybody else going to go from here?



    Apologies if picture is huge.

    Saw this on my FB feed. Shared by one of the local tattoo shops (AWOL). I'm hoping to go.

    Had no idea you were from around here, RedBullBabe!

    That's where I saw it too.

    Yep. Loughrea. We did have a discussion about it once. Galway that is, but that was yonks ago.

    Just thought it would be a chane as well to make a friend or two with similar interests maybe. I've lived here for ten years, but with being sick a lot during that time I've only made one friend; and I don't get out much, or have anywhere that takes my fancy. Lol.

    Ohhh... sorry I didn't remember! My memory is so poor. :/ For some reason it was in my head that you were from Northern Ireland.

    Looking forward to the tat show though. Hopefully some other forum members will come. Just a shame there are fewer Irish members on here than before.

    Sorry for the late reply, my fingers are like frozen and sore. Hard to type with just one finger.

    I was looking forwards to going with my son, but it's like €23/€26 euro for a weekend pass per person; so I'm not so sure now. I've never been to a tattoo convention before and not sure how big the one in Galway will be. But I'm a bit hesitant. I'm not made of money and don't really want to pay that much for my 14 year old to get in, and I can't leave him at home.

    Then I would have to pay his bus fare both days. Then if I wanted something, I'm sure he would too, and I wouldn't be able to afford it. Grr!

    I don't want to be paying out €65 odd for two days without coming away with something physical and just a memory. Not like I can take pictures without asking everyone's permission. Gah! I'm just not sure it would be worth it.

    Yeah, same boat. I had no idea it'd cost that much!
    Hopefully a few others will jump into the thread - unless it's a case of meeting a few folk there it may not be worth going after all.

    Guys, come and join the craic haha

    I know, I was kinda shocked there was just one flat price. I searched on their FB page to get it, from someone else that had asked, because my question to them went unanswered. I was surprised there was no child rate. I've always got tattoo mags and seen conventions advertised so know there's usually different rates.

    I am going to keep an eye on their FB page and I'll post if there's any changes regarding prices at least.

    Plus, like you said about going alone, personally I couldn't imagine wandering around the Radisson for a weekend with no cash and hoping a teenagers love of art would keep him entertained for that long. I just dunno. Lol. I don't get out much beyond once a week to pay bills and get food so it would be a big thing for me to go. Ha ha.
