LeakyCon Portland has ended
Hi there! Welcome to the LeakyCon Sched.org! Please note, that signing up for this site or indicating which sessions you will be at is not at all required. You cannot reserve a seat to a session on this site; if a session looks "full" it’s only because we input the capacity of the rooms. All sessions at LeakyCon are first-come first-serve except for the autograph and photo-booth sessions that indicate otherwise. Lit programming may still only be attended by those who have a Lit badge (these are now sold out). Again: you do not have to sign up for this site or use it in any way in order to go to any event at LeakyCon. it’s a way for you to find other people who are interested in the same things you are, and a way for you to show your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and beyond what you’re interested in at the conference. But it is not in ANY way a ticketing system. We hope you enjoy surfing the schedule!

Tattoo Meetup

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There has been a considerable amount of research on the perception of tattoos and how people with tattoos are stereotyped, but there has been little research from the perspective of those who have tattoos. My goal is to change that. Share your stories and I will share my research into the origin, meaning and reasons why we tattoo ourselves and others. I will have some temporary tattoos for those of you who want to experience having a tattoo but have not yet taken the plunge.
