I Just talked with Mario Barth’s event Rep. He told me the cost of a one day admittance is still $45.00 a day, or $100 plus- for all three days. This is a RIP OFF DELUXE. DO NOT PAY THIS RIDICULOUS PRICE. This Event takes more than $835,000 dollars from the tattoo community before the Tattooers even have a chance to talk to the potential Clients. These events need to be stopped. Do the Tattoo Profession good and Boycott this event forever.
I was there 2 years ago when Mario went for the Geniuses World Record. Even though he claimed more that ten thousand attendees were in the room at one time, it never happened. Total bull shit.
But if it would have happened, Mario would have taken $450,000 dollars out of the tattoo for profession for entrance fees, and another $160,000 for booth space for a total of $610,000 dollars out of the Tattoo Profession in one day. Add the other 5 thousand entrance fees paid at $45,00 each for the other two days of the event and you can easily see that this event takes approximately $835,000 dollars that’s right, Eight Hundred Thirty-Five Thousand Dollars from the Tattoo profession and not one cent generated for the tattoo Profession.
There was never 10,000 attendees in the room at one time at any tattoo event in the USA. Marios statement about 10,000 people in the Room at one time was nothing but bull shit. And he never paid me for the Seminar I gave at that show. If you have plans to give a seminar at that show, good luck getting your money or anything else Mario tells you to expect. He never paid me for the attendees to my seminar.
Event though the The greatest show on earth was reported in TATTOO MAGAZINE that the 2010 event was bigger than the 2009 event, that was total bull shit too. Look for the actual Tattoo magazine issue at, http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://magzainereviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Tattoo-Magazine.jpg&imgrefurl=http://magzainereviews.com/%3Fp%3D226&usg=__AGtEJNZjhOMVGB3l-PMXjN_tJwI=&h=448&w=326&sz=53&hl=en&start=1&zoom=1&tbnid=Q7rTeouPayxxYM:&tbnh=127&tbnw=92&ei=v3xrTpL1C-_YiALfzqC_Dg&prev=/images%3Fq%3DTattoo%2Bmagazine%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dsafari%26sa%3DX%26rls%3Den%26tbm%3Disch&itbs=1
In 2010, The Greatest Show on Earth was only half the size it was the year earlier, which is a good sign that the call for this Boycott is working, and the serious Tattooers are, in fact, supporting this movement to slow down the flow of money going to these Promotion companies that are skimming the profits from the Tattoo Profession.
This financial loss for the Tattoo Profession is driving the Tattoo Profession into a permanent Profession wide Depression that will not change or get any better until these types of Tattoo skimming events are not supported by the true to the profession Tattoo Artists and Craftsmen.
Send Mario a message at http://lasvegastattooshow.com/ and Boycott this event
