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.”

Trey English and Megan Malone are engaged to be married. On Sunday, Aug. 6, 2016, Trey popped the big question at his own birthday party at the couple’s home in North Richland Hills.
Trey prepared for the surprise proposal by creating a mystery box which was disguised as one of his birthday presents.
“It was a black box about the size of a hat box.” Said Trey. I put white question marks on it and a single balloon attached to the top. It looked like a present for me.”
Most of friends and family present at the party though they celebrating Trey’s 31st Birthday until Trey let the guest in on his plan to propose.
“After I opened my first birthday present I grabbed the mystery box and handed it to Megan.” Said Trey. “I told her to ask one question to every person in the room that knew what was inside the box.”
By the time questions were answered Megan was more confused about what was in the box than before the game began.
Trey smoothly took a knee beside Megan as she opened the box to find a small black lantern, like one that might sit on a cabinet for decoration. Inside the lantern, glued down to the bottom was a small white ring case.
Megan opened the box and was surprised to find a silver diamond ring. Megan and Trey looked into each-other’s eyes and Megan said “Yes.”
“I don’t know what the hell I did in another life to deserve the man I have, but God knows it had to be luck in this lifetime to land a man like Trey English.” Said Megan.
“I intend to spend the rest of my life showing this man how much I appreciate and adore him. We’re unstoppable together & I feel on top of the world. Happy birthday my love, you are my gift!”
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.
