Trey English scored big this year at the 2nd Annual Ink and Arts Tattoo Convention in Fort Worth. The convention was filled with heavy competition and a lot of great artists competed in the competitions.
The Will Roger Colosseum was filled with tattoo artists, enthusiasts and people who just looked like they were kind of trying not to take the scenery in too fast.
The convention was filled with booths from artists, suppliers, and aftercare companies. Troll from The Salty Dog Tattoo shop, in Fort Worth, went big this year and brought in two guest artists from Europe and an authentic tribal artist who did stick tattooing.
There were several competitions that weekend and the competition was serious.
“I didn’t think I was going to win,” said English.”I competed in a black and gray competition just so I could have one of my pieces walk across a stage, there were a lot of great pieces submitted and I was surprised at the results.”
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. Since this was only English’s second convention bringing home four awards from a single convention is something to be proud of.
At the 1st Annual Ink and Art Tattoo convention in 2015, English took home best small color and best neo-traditional.
