Besides staying in Toronto, Stefan and I also hit up Niagara Falls for some tourist action. I took a few pics. The wind was blowing a bit so the mist of the natural falls made it hard to capture. Then we took a stroll up the street and walked into a couple haunted houses, Ripley's Believe It or Not!, and grabbed some ice cream. It was overall just a beautiful day.
So this past weekend my friend Stefan Meisse and I traveled up to Toronto for the NIX tattoo convention. We had a great time making new friends , tattoos, and seeing some familiar faces. This was my second year attending and I must say that I had just as much this year as I did last year. Within the first two hours of being there I even lost my phone. Lucky for me I was able to get it back thankfully because of friends and a genuinely nice limo driver. That was just a little bump in the road. I also painted a skateboard for NIX's "Highway to Hell" Art Show. They auctioned it off for the "Skate 4 Cancer" foundation. I'm super proud to say that my board raised $5000 for the charity. Awesome ! Now here's a couple tattoos I made on Friday and Saturday of the convention. Not the best pics, but hopefully I get some better ones next year. Cheers to Canada and possibly doing a S Africa convention at the beginning of the year.
