This was the first time we exhibited our brand at this event so we weren't really sure what to expect. We've done plenty of events with the same organizer of the event, so we were confident that it was going to be a good event since this was the 5th annual event for this convention.

I flew out to Kansas City from Newark Airport on a Thursday. Most tattoo conventions are usually held for 3 days from Friday to Sunday. One of the most convenient aspects of this convention is that the event is held at the same hotel where I was staying! As soon as I got to the hotel room, I was able to relax

The Philadelphia Tattoo Convention is probably one of the biggest and busiest tattoo conventions on the East Coast and I have a strange feeling this one will be even bigger than the rest due to the Sunday's Superbowl win! This will be our 6th year at this convention and we cannot wait to see all the familiar faces and hear the stories of repeat customers who wait all year to see us there.

Fukitt Clothing | DC Tattoo Expo 2018

Last weekend we kicked off our 2018 pop up shop season at the DC Tattoo Convention. I believe this was our 5th time at this show and it's always a great way to start off the year! Filled with friends we haven't seen in a few months, yet seemed like yesterday, was so good to see them all.

So many things changed with people and businesses, but everyone was still the same! As usual, we got there, unloaded and set up, and then checked into our room. Upgraded to a huge suite for free, I knew this was going to be a great weekend!

Fukitt Clothing

This past weekend we were at our first show of the year down in DC at the DC Tattoo Convention. Both of us wound up with terrible colds, throwing us off our game a little, but like they say, "the show must go on"!  The show did, in fact, go on. We struggled through setting up and a typical slower Friday, and managed to smile through feeling like hell to spread the word about our brand. 

After a sleepless night (one can't sleep if one can't breathe) Saturday I was at my worst, While downing Musinex, vitamins and orange juice so we could actually speak to customers and breathe, we again managed to talk to people and inspire them about our brand and our mission. We met several people who were return customers with stories of how simply wearing our shirt or hat changed their lives, their day and their outlook.
