Award winning tattoo artist, Trey English and his finance Megan Z Malone, rode West last week in search of glory at the 2017 Lubbock Tattoo Expo. The couple deployed their tattoo and piercing skills with passion and precision and took home more than just a fist full of cash.
At the convention, Trey claimed second place in the best small color tattoo competition. His award-winning piece is a color portrait of the couple’s hairless cat, Murphy, that Trey tattooed on Megan’s hand during the convention.
Trey began his tattoo career in Lubbock in 2006 so winning this award was a personal triumph for him.
“I ultimately achieved my goal,” said Trey. “I went back and won an award at the town I learned how to tattoo at.”
The convention was packed and patrons traveled from all around the Mid-South East to attend. Trey was so impressed with the convention that he is dedicated to returning next year and will gladly work any event put on by Mike Diaz, from Sunken City Tattoo Studio.
“It was the best show I have been to thus far,” said Trey. “On Saturday they opened the doors at noon and by 1 pm every booth was fully booked up for the day, with tattoo and piercing appointments, it was non-stop business.”
The convention featured several unique attractions including a tattoo hole in the wall booth, which allows patrons to stick their arm into a hole where a tattoo artist is waiting. The patrons pay their money and receive a small tattoo, not of their choosing. The artist waiting on the other side can tattoo whatever they want. Unicorns and numerical symbols were used and small tattoos were emerging on people’s arms as they removed them from the hole in the wall.
“People paid their $25 and they got what they got,” said Trey. “The artists were doing a lot of Friday the 13th type banger tattoos, some people were cool with what they got and some were not.”
In only one short month the couple will be Traveling North to the Evergreen Tattoo Invitational in Oregon on March 17th thru 19th. Trey and Megan wanted to thank everyone that helped put on the Lubbock convention. They were impressed with how well the convention was organized and flowed and how Mike Diaz took special care of all the artists at the convention.
Trey English has officially accepted invitations to two tattoo conventions in 2017. Trey has packed his tattoo gear and he is ready to hit the convention trails in search of awesome tattoos and a lot more awards.

Next Trey is cruising over to the Evergreen Tattoo Invitational March 17th thru 19th.
“I like conventions because it’s fun to network and learn from my peers,” said English. “It also allows me to show the public what I am truly capable of with my tattoos.”
Trey will be entering into the tattoo competitions at both events and will be looking to continue his winning streak.
“I want to thank everyone who asked to support me at these conventions by donating their skin to me,” said English. “I am very sorry that I could not book everyone, but I only have so many slots and times to tattoo.”
At the 2nd Annual Ink and Arts Tattoo Convention in Fort Worth, English took home 2nd place in black and gray, Tattoo of the day on Saturday, Best neo-traditional small, and first place small cover-up.
