Dark Water Studio Artist Manny Abadi will be attending the 1st annual Chicago Downtown Tattoo Arts Convention at the Hyatt Regency Downtown. None can be used for any purpose whatsoever without written permission from the Tattoo Artist.
At any given time, between 150-200 people were having their skin pierced and ink injected to create a design or memorialize a person or event in their lives. In the case of the man in the photo below, the chest tattoo he was receiving would ultimately require between four and six hours of time to complete. In the course of a day at the convention, TheBlaze witnessed several couples debating the perfect design for their “matching tattoos,” a father and son sharing a “new tradition” — dad got his very first tattoo when he was just 18 years old and this year he brought his son to get his first. The proud father even captured the moment his son grimaced as the needle broke his skin for the very first time.
As TheBlaze wandered from booth to booth and spoke with people in the process of selecting or getting a tattoo, we asked most of them if they have a “favorite” tattoo. We also asked if there was a specific tattoo they regretted getting or wished they could remove or eliminate. TheBlaze witnessed several people visiting artists who specialized in making over or covering unwanted or unloved tattoos. While it is an option used by many, covering an unwanted tattoo is not the only way to deal with ink you wish could disappear. In the convention center and doing a fairly strong business was a company called Tataway Studio.


As it was explained to TheBlaze by a Tataway rep, they use a special laser to break down the ink under the skin, helping to body to naturally remove the offensive or irritating artwork. Of course, every tattoo is as different as each person and many factors play into the removal of a tattoo. They showed us some “before” and “after” images, demonstrating just how well the system can work.
In addition to the non-stop tattooing going on throughout the massive ballroom, a host of vendors offering T-shirts, custom designs you can take to your favorite ink artist and even a stage with entertainment going on from the time the doors opened to when it closed for the night. At one point, he performed the classic sword-swallowing trick, using a florescent light, light saber. All of the art on the walls display creativity through experimentation, skill and intellect.
We understand the value of knowledge & creative expansion and how it can benefit individual lives as well as entire communities.

There were also a good number of people getting updates, corrections or covering up a memory or artwork no longer wanted. Of the people we spoke with, most expected to spend between two and four hours sitting or reclining as the tattoo artist worked on the desired image. And according to more than one “inked” person we spoke with, chest tattoos are some of the most painful to get. Almost every person had a tattoo they wished that had not gotten or would like covered or removed. Tataway’s website claims the health of the person is directly related to the success of the removal. With his entire body covered in green puzzle-piece tattoos and his head displaying horns, Lawrence’s show is a high-energy, fast-paced combination of comedy and juggling and illusion. Because of such, we offer the Leilagio Art Scholarship to a prospective art student at William Paterson University. Funds are gathered from painting auctions, donations and tattooing during exhibit opening days.
