Thanks Summit Daily for the early press!

Tattooing!Thanks to the Summit Daily for some great press! Here is a taste of their article: "Seminars and classes at the Paradise Tattoo Gathering Thursday through Sunday at Keystone Resort are filling up fast. Shawn Barber's live portrait painting class on Thursday is sold out and other presentations are close, so participants interested in the four-day local event are encouraged to get online and register now.


The event is open to the public, and tattoo artists, collectors of body art and aficionados from around the region are invited to attend. Doors open at 11 a.m. Thursday and the event promises to be one of the most heavily inked weekends of the year in Summit County.


For those interested in getting tattooed, go online and try to pre-book with your artist of choice, or show up early, as some artists will be operating on a first-come first-served basis. Dozens of well-known ink slingers from around the country will be on hand for your collecting pain and pleasure. Big Gus from Hesperia, Calif., will be tattooing with a close-up camera and microphone so that audience members can watch and ask questions during the session. Artist Shawn Barber and other special guests will make a kick-off speech at noon on Thursday as a preview to the weekend. Other special artist presentations include sculpting with Chet Zar, a lecture by Jeff Gogue, sketching with Tommy Lee Wendtner and a “State of the Industry” panel discussion. Each morning, Jen Schici will lead a Kundalini yoga class for tattoo artists before the show opens again at 11. "
