The results are in from Cardinal Tattoo's trip to the Washington D. C. Tattoo Expo! After a long weekend spent with some of the best people in the industry, replete with a show by Mini KISS(!), Karen & Rev, Ricky, and Wayne are back with the trappings of a show gone well: Dozens of new stickers from some great shops, catch-up stories from old friends and some from a few new ones, and a short stack of trophies taken in the tattoo contests.
Cardinal Tattoo brought home the following :
Best Small Black and Grey- 1st Place
Best Large Black and Grey-1st Place
Best Black and Grey Portrait- 1st Place
Best Color Portrait- 1st Place
Not bad from a small shop in a small town in Tennessee.
A great time was had by all, so much so that we've already booked our return trip next year! We'd like to take a moment to thank Piper for hosting a great show and Michelle for all of her help as well as the crew at Exposed Temptations Tattoo and Baller Inc. for making us feel at home during our first visit, see you next year!
