4th Annual Muddy Water’s Tattoo Convention
Located in Davenport, Iowa
By Mary D’Aloisio

The 4th Annual Muddy Water’s Tattoo Convention was held on the banks of the mighty Mississippi at the Quad City Waterfront Convention Center in Davenport Iowa. Heather Stumpf and her father, Iowan tattoo old-timer “Stumpf,” have assembled a little regional convention with a big heart that is beloved by the folks venturing out each year to attend and work the event. It’s not a big show, but it attracts enough solid artists and educated enthusiasts to be well worth attending.

Inked Out NJ

Gil Monte7139 22 Inked Out NJ

Visiting Inked Out New Jersey was like walking through a hall of legends. Every few feet, the show’s ten thousand attendees encountered the most celebrated, historic figures in tattooing today from across the world. Looking to the left, there was Mark Mahoney of the Shamrock Social Club tattooing just feet away from where the infamous Crazy Philadelphia Eddie signed books and made small talk. Bowery Stan Moskowitz tattooed further down the line, telling stories, surrounded by his family. To the right, Gill Montie worked and joked over the buzzing of his tattoo gun not far from where Peter and Petelo Suluape from Samoa and Horitoshi I of Japan exhibited their traditional styles of tattooing, drawing considerable crowds. Veteran tattooers, up-and-comers, long-time collectors and the uninitiated alike converged upon the Meadowlands in Secaucus, NJ, turning the expo center into a three-day-long party and an exhibition of the best work tattooing has to offer.

First Shots at Vegas Show

October
2nd 2010

It’s very late, but I wanted to at least post a couple of shots of the opening day of the convention.

We shot well over 100 people and the crowd around our booth was steady through the entire day.

We were so busy I almost forgot to break out my own crappy cam and fire off a shot or two.

Here is a small glimpse into what was going on. I’ll have more tomorrow I swear.
