Thanks for another successful Paradise Tattoo Gathering!

Well, I cant thank everyone enough for the amazing time at the Paradise Tattoo Gathering a few weeks ago. While the Gathering is a lot of hard work, it the favorite of my three jobs. Between the artists teaching, the artists learning, artists tattooing, the collectors collecting, and the staff facilitating, there is enough positive energy to... well... to do something (I guess we will find out what!). Special thanks to Guy Aitchison for brining his two seminars, and another whopper of a special thanks to Bob Tyrrell, who was teaching and tattooing and has earned the impeccable reputation he is well known for. While we are sticking to our guns, there will be no Tattoo Gathering next year, we are making final arrangements to host the Paradise Artists Retreat the same weekend. While there will be no tattooing, there will be plenty of painting, a few seminars, a few forums, and a lot more rest for us! Keep the same weekend open, and there will be more details to follow, as well as confirmation for 2011's Gathering dates. Thanks again, see you soon!
