And we are off! This will be first of many Art, music and ink blogs coming your way.
In todays world art music and ink seem to rule the world.
It is not as taboo as it all used to be. We are free to be starving artists, musicians, and have permeant art all over our bodies. Even though this is true, we should always carry ourselves with some class and sophistication.
This year we started attending tattoo conventions on the east coast.
Do not get me wrong they are awesome! But our first one was a little intimidating. We walk in and set up our booth, while the eyes of convention veterans judge us. Yes they were nice, but we were far from "belonging" to their culture it seemed.
I have a bunch of tattoos, but at that time i had none that showed. I was really looked down upon as I would walk up to booths and artists trying to network. But as I talked more, they warmed up to me.
My smiles and inability to shut up, finally started to pay off.
"THEY LIKE ME, THEY REALLY LIKE ME!!"
As we started to attend more and more tattoo conventions, we saw that no matter what we all judge who is different from us, at least from a first glance. We have met some of the nicest and most loyal people at these shows.
But isn't that how it is all the time? Even though our artistic views are a bit more accepted, We walk in with out tattoos and fun outfits and we are "weird". I do not believe it will ever vanish, but it seems as if "weird" is the new black.
Now we we are starting to truly flourish in this industry and we hope to keep climbing the ladder of success!
So be proud of what you stand for. But also remember people stand around you. Accept everyones "weirdness", because your never know when you will need it. Stay true and be Sophisticated ladies and gentleman, lets take over this world withArt, Music and Ink!
