"Back when the humans used to inhabit Carkayous, it was an entirely different place. All the creatures were seen as specimens rather than a life form. The experiments carried on for almost a half century before the government cut funding and they left the island in shambles. Now, almost 45 years later the island is left in shambles and its rare to see any animals that haven't been a victim of genetic modification. Although it's very interesting to see this alien-esque world, I can't help but think about all the horrible things that had to happen in order to create it.
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.
