Tattooing is an ancient art with thousands of years of history. Illustration styles, artistic influences, remembrance, cultural import; tattoos mean a lot of different things, to a lot of different people.
The Greyscale Tattoo Convention takes it back to basics. Focusing on the stark simplicity and beauty of fine illustration and blackwork tattoos, the convention brings artists from around the Metro Vancouver area and beyond, for demonstrations, lessons, sessions, and talks.
The list of attending artists include:
- Kirk Shandro

- Maryellen Groundwater
- Miranda Boire (Lanie K)
- Ryan Tsutsumi
- Vanessa Dong
