Off from work just to join the tattoo competition, we arrived at Tacloban's astrodome past 11:00 am which was too early for the 2pm-7pm designated time for the compe. I felt very relax at the venue since the dome is located near the sea. The convention was my second time I have attended as an exposure to the industry where my craftsmanship belong. A passion in which I can freely express myself. In a given of 5 hours, most of us completed each piece of design within 3-4 hours. The category of the competition was Black and Grey with a minimum dimensions of 5" x 8". This is my second portrait tattoo done in my year of tattooing.
