Unconventional Mother’s Day at Tattoo Convention – Photos/Video

Mother's Day

Mother's Day

No entry fee for mothers Sunday. Daughters brought mothers with both getting tattoos. Young and not so young were lining up for tattoos by local artists like Monica Moses of Alex’s New Tattoo in Roanoke to Horiryu from Tokyo Japan.

Phyllis Brennan, 56 was there with her daughter Molly, 19. Phyllis’ first tattoo was emblazoned on her wrist with her second on her neck when she was 46. She said her sister received her first tattoo at age 64. Phyllis had just finished getting another tattoo on her ankle. Molly was in the process of getting a tattoo on her chest – Molly’s second.

The most asked question is “does it hurt?” Well if you look at the receipient of a tattoo by Blacksburg’s Graham Fisher of Custom Tattoos his smile seems to indicate it doesn’t hurt at all. He was in the chair for more than an hour receiving an intricate piece of art on his arm.

The interesting leg tattoo pictured was done by Hector Cedillo of Unholy Grail Tattoo & Art Gallery in Worcester, MA and Mike McMahon of Blue Horseshoe Tattoo out of Virginia Beach.

Pat Walton of Twisted Silver makes kitchen chimes. Her interesting display of fine dinnerware sparked and chimed with sounds much different then the ordinary wind chime.
