After debuting with a successful and sold out inaugural and 2nd annual Westchester Tattoo Convention, Addicted To Ink returns to host the 2015 Westchester Tattoo Convention on October 16, 17 and 18, 2015, at the Westchester County Center for the Arts in White Plains, NY.

This year’s convention will feature several new and interactive learning experiences available in the form of unique seminars and classes.

See below for select activities taking place at the Westchester Tattoo Convention.

“Advanced Techniques in Painting on Watercolor Paper, and The Use of Blood as a Medium”, led by surrealist Vincent Castiglia.

Cost: $100

For the first time ever, Vincent publicly discusses all aspects of his creative process, his inspirations and preferences, as well as the importance of finding and honing your own style, composition, shooting your own photo reference, and his techniques of working with blood as a medium - including a step by step demonstration of how he mixes and works with the varying consistencies necessary to complete a painting. The seminar will include example slides from photo shoots, in progress shots of paintings, and blood collection. The seminar will begin in lecture format covering all topics in detail, including time-lapse videos of Vincent’s latest painting, “Beauty And Truth (Not Forgotten)” (for which cover model Leah Jung modeled), and the blood collection process. The seminar will conclude with a live painting demonstration done for attendants, illustrating how the first (foundation) and last (fine details) are applied to his paintings.

Attendants are strongly suggested to take notes, and are free to draw during the seminar (but no painting besides Vincent’s demo will be possible, as we won’t be setup for this). Vincent’s seminar is open to all skill levels. There will be a 20 minute Q and A following the live painting demo, during which Vincent encourages questions from attendants.

Spaces for this seminar are expected to fill up quickly, and are first come first serve! To sign up, PayPal $100 to: - If you’d like to ask a question before signing up, email to this address.

“There are No Stupid Questions”: A seminar & Q&A session with Timmy B., Lindsay Baker & Sam Fiorino of NiteOwl Tattoo

The massively talented artists from Northampton Massachusetts’ NiteOwl Tattoo will collaborate to create a unique opportunity for the professional tattoo artist. In this stripped down, informal seminar, artists will have an opportunity to ask questions regarding technique, color palette, equipment, application, and much more. Artists are encouraged to bring their own portfolios to be critiqued and should feel comfortable asking anything since, as the title states, there are no stupid questions! Sunday, October 18 @ 2pm, $50.00, spots very limited. Email to sign up.
