@my_kind_of_scum, would you be so kind as to point out where on Facebook this is being discussed?Wish I could. Most of the artists haven't been answering messages at all. There's been a lot of talk about this on Facebook. People are pretty frustrated and rightfully so. It's really unprofessional.
I finally booked my spot this past Monday! This will be my first tattoo and I am pretty excited about it!
The first two artists I contacted (both through email and facebook/twitter) took a long while to reply back to me (one was over a week), I think the issue was working other conventions and life which is very understandable to me.
The third artists that I contacted (through email again) got back to me that same day (within an hour actually!) and that is who I have appointment with now.
