Are you at the stage in your tattoo career that you need a boost to take your work to the next level or just a push to help you fall back in love with your chosen profession? As the economy is picking up across the globe, is it time to revisit your studio's business plans? Or do you just plain need a break?Well, may I suggest that if you have answered "yes" to any or all of these questions that you get yourself a place at the Portland World Wide Tattoo Conference on 19 - 21 October 2015.

This conference forms part of an ongoing series that started in 2011 and have taken place around the world. I personally attended the conference held in London and even though new to tattooing I found that the open and honest sharing of information helped me then and continues to help me in my decision making process to this day. It allowed me access to some of the best tattooists in the world at the very start of my career and also made me think about my attitude towards tattooing, and how I wanted my career, business and reputation to grow. Something I think we often fail to allow ourselves time to do in the hurly burly of the modern, ever changing, world.

From the likes of tattoo luminaries such as Guy Aitchinson, Nick Baxter and Alex De Pase you will hear how they approach tattooing, their experiences and thought processes. The conference does not use one sterile teaching approach, no death by Powerpoint here, but instead you will be able to make the most of a variety of sessions, including seminars, speeches and interactive discussion panels. These artists will allow you a real insight into a variety of issues, such as how they plan tattoos, their use of colour, planning and preparation. Equally, it is not all about the laying down tattoos and as such the conference kicks off with a seminar about how to build your tattoo business in whatever form that may take.

This need not be a solitary experience for you but instead you may wish to include everyone from your studio and use this as a team building opportunity. The World Wide Tattoo Conference will allow a studio team or an individual the chance to step off the treadmill and take some well deserved 'me' time. Spread over three days and inclusive of meals and refreshments this really is a great opportunity to not only learn from some of tattooing's greatest names but to also meet, rub shoulders and interact with other tattooists with the same desire to improve themselves, to expand their abilities and learn.

Having been held previously in Rome, Boston and Chicago, this conference is to be held in Portland, the largest city in Oregon and is easily accessible by road, rail or air. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend this year, as I have a passion for micro-brewers and Portland is home of the American microbrewery!

Just remember this is not a Tattoo Convention but a chance to learn, share and expand as a tattoo individual or as a tattoo team. Do yourself a favour, book your leave, buy your ticket and spoil yourself rotten...you know you deserve it.
