A few of the inhabitants from the Galapagos have attempted to build homes here in Carkayous but to my knowledge none have stayed except this little boy. I've never actually had an opportunity to talk to him, I just catch glimpses of him speeding through Durken Forest from time to time. I'm hoping to one day catch up with him because I'm pretty confident he's got a ton of stories to tell. :)
Three days of becoming a better artists, tattooers, and people! The Rock River Tattoo Art Expo will combine aspects of artist-focused professional development events with the style of a larger tattoo convention, open to the public. The two convention floors will be filled with artist and vendor booths, with the artists showcasing not only tattooing but work in other mediums as well. Some booths will feature live painting alongside the tattoo booths. There will be additional vendor booths in some of the hallways and auxiliary spaces along with a museum exhibit showcasing some important tattoo artifacts including some of local significance. Throughout the weekend there will be activity on the main stage including interviews, talks by high-profile speakers, a historical discussion, tattoo art critiques, and a daily showcase of work that was completed on the convention floor.
