NIX 15 Tattoo Show is over for another year. Another great show, many thanks to all especially those that actually helped and or supported us in any way at the show or otherwise. A big thank you to and the NIX Tattoo Show itself for contributing to the cause, again. These same issues are relevant to this whole industry and we appreciate the help mgetting the word out! Last we would also like to thank Jacqueline Beach from the APT for helping us at the booth AND for doing a great seminar. She travelled up here, by herself to do that seminar and hang around Toronto and did it at the last moment without getting paid a dime! That's what it takes to be an APT representative!
