So Mr. Mikey and I (at my prodding) headed over to the 2010 Tattoo Convention in Phila this past weekend.
I personally have a love hate relationship with tattoos. I have many from my young adult life of lessons learned (many of which I now dislike). I very much enjoy tattooing as an art form and even apprenticed right out of High School but alas my attention span was not up to the amount of work it takes to be a worthy tattooist.
This was our 3rd Tattoo Convention (last one was a decade ago or longer) and my how things have changed. Halloween art is everywhere! Original and print art for sale as home decor is everywhere! It was a true feast for the artful eyes.
soo moody, haunting and beautiful in an odd manner.
Such wonderful examples of intriguing art for inspiration!
what do you like about it, what don't you like. Don't just dismiss it b/c you wouldn't necessarily buy it...look at it, discover it and see if anything surprises you?
Artful business banners that are just so expressive!
Finally, I leave you with the jewelry genius of Francene of MARTHA ROTTEN!
I was lucky enough to meet her at last years National Halloween Convention and am delighted to report she is returning to the 2010 NHC in a few weeks!!
All her pieces are non tarnishing or turning..they are solid polished pewter!
Baby Head Bracelets!
I got this one!!!
Baby head Belt buckles, yes!
~Molded from Vintage Doll heads~
Molded from real crows feet, chicken bones and various bonery!
Let your Halloween Party guests see your attention to every spooky detail with these wicked salt and pepper shakers!
