Trey English is hitting the road once again, this time he is making his way down to the 2018 Ink and Art Expo in Galveston on October 5th thru 7th.
The event will be held at The San Luis Resort and will play host to hundreds of amazing tattoo artists and enthusiasts. Trey will once again be competing in the tattoo competitions and will be looking for another 1st place award to already impressive stack.
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.
Trey will first be participating in the 3rd Annual Lubbock Tattoo Expo, February 3rd thru 5th. His style and skills put him in the running for best small color tattoo and many others.
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. He also took home two awards for Best Small Color and Best Neo-Traditional tattoos at the 1st Annual Ink and Art Tattoo convention in 2015.
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.
