As you may, or may not know, Lubbock had planned to do the first ever tattoo convention this month. However, those plans where squashed when it was discovered that due to a city ordnance all tattooing had to be performed in a tattoo parlor. Obviously, that would not work for a gathering aimed at tattoo artists and those who might want to take advantage of the event to get some new ink.

Thanks to a recent city council vote though, October 25-27 (2013) Lubbock will be the host city for The Full Tilt Tattoo Convention, right here in the Civic Center.  Not only will there be over 35 of the top National and International artists in town, but the lovely ladies and gentlemen from Threads Locks & Rock will be one of the featured events, and there will of course be live music each night.

Be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for more information on this event in the coming weeks and months! You're going to want to be a part of this first of its kind of event here in the Hub!
