Cardiff Comic Con – September’18

Hi, folks!

A quick announcement to say that, after a fantastic weekend in May, I’ll be at Comic Con again on 22-23rd September at Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff.

Pretty much the same deal as last time, where I’ll be around all day to chat to you in person, so feel free to swing by and say hey~ ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m conscious that there were big queues last time with many of you waiting very patiently, so I think for this one, I’ll suggest booking an appointment with me at the studio for a longer chat (or video call, if you’ll be travelling from afar), to save people waiting for too long. Sound fair?

Unfortunately, I won’t be selling customised portraits this time round, but signed art prints will still be available, and it’ll be the only place where you can buy 2 for ยฃ20 (saving ยฃ5).

Will I finish the Ghibli Tribute in time?ย ๐Ÿ˜ฑย With running the business and being in the intense NatWest Accelerator course, I’ll admit, I’m finding it hard to keep everything in check, but I’ll try my best to get the print ready to sell on the day, as many of you were interested last time. If you’d like to follow its progress, Instagram is the best place to find me, as I often share Live Stories of what I’m up to (they’re quicker and easier than arranging posts).

Thanks for reading and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Comic Con Call-Out 2018

….How has it been a week since Comic Con already?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Thanks so much to those of you who supported me during my first big event – I had a blast~ ๐Ÿ˜„ If you wanted to have a chat but I was on a break or talking to someone else for a while, please get in touch: info@naohoa.com. I’d love to hear from you!

Going by Zan’s notes from when I was away, here’s a call-out to some peeps:

  • Simon (Kylo Ren cosplay) who’s after a chest piece.
  • Andy from one of the stalls selling figurines who’s wants a coverup.
  • Marines dude who has or wanted a dragon? Think I may have spoken to you eventually but not sure.

I appreciate that conversations lasted 5-20mins per person at times and you wanted to experience the event more, so if you were patiently waiting (or too shy to approach me on the day), please do get in touch – I don’t bite. ๐Ÿ™‚

PM/email is best as they’re easier for me to catch up with and I don’t answer calls when I’m with clients or outside of Opening Hours (11am-6pm, Mon-Sat). We can always arrange a timeslot over the phone if you prefer to chat before booking a consultation.

 

Let’s Chat!ย ๐Ÿ˜„

What Else I got Up To

NAOHOA Luxury Bespoke Tattoos at Cardiff Comic Con, selling Sugarskull Cubone and Geo Swan Art Prints by Naomi Hoang.Besides chatting to people about what I do here at NAOHOA, I was also selling and signing art

prints. Sugarskull Cubone and Geo Swan are currently available, with Ghibli Tribute on the way (available for pre-order).

…..Also, yes, that’s a Pokรฉball next to a NAOHOA ball. ๐Ÿ˜€ My friend Simon rendered it for me when I was obsessed with Pokรฉmon GO and wanted to do some themed prints/tattoos.

I also had a really lovely time getting to know some of the stall-owners, such as Gwen Davies, who let me have a go at henna for the first time (and sells gorgeous earrings!).

Overall, it was a fab weekend. I was pretty anxious leading up to it, but people were super lovely and it was completely worth doing. Now to sign up for more~ย ๐Ÿ˜˜

 

Thanks for reading!

Prize Draw

Word-of-mouth and top reviews are by far the best way for any business to gain traction. For an industry such as tattooing, that requires a large amount of trust, they’re absolutely vital.

Those of you who have experienced getting a tattoo at NAOHOA know how hard I work to be as accommodating and professional as possible. Since launching in 2015 it’s been a one-woman-band, and I really appreciate those of you who have taken the time to write a review.

 

As a ‘Thank You’, I run a seasonal Prize Draw, where you have the opportunity to win one of the following:

 

…all you have to do is leave me a review on Google AND Facebook by the last Thursday of January, April, July or October to qualify (I’ll announce the winner the next day via Facebook Live). Leaving a review on one or the other platform is super appreciated but doesn’t qualify you to the Prize Draw!

This applies to past clients only. Each participant can only win once.

Once you’ve done that, please fill in this survey, so I know your prize preferences. ๐Ÿ™‚ I may be in contact with you to check your postal address before sending your prize.

That’s all, folks~

#NAOHOAstory…Henna Om

This client came all the way from Birmingham for a tattoo she’d wanted for about 3 years. Being her first taste of ink, she wisely opted for the Temporary Tattoo Package, allowing her to try on her design in two different colours (black and brown). There was quite a lot of traffic on the way down and she had to leave early to head towards Portsmouth, but we managed to get the bulk of it done! Whenever she’s ready next, we’ll neaten it up with a thicker outline around the outside. ๐Ÿ™‚

(5/5) This is as finished as I’ll get for a long while, as she’s since moved to Canada! ๐Ÿ Still need to do a thicker outline around the whole thing to tidy it up, but well sat nonetheless for her first tattoo. ๐Ÿ˜Š #NAOHOAstory .

 

Testimonial:

“Naomi is an exceptional tattoo artist and highly skilled. I choose to get my first tattoo with Naomi because the studio was very welcoming, extremely clean and well organised. While I was there, Naomi made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I will definitely be going back there in the future.”

– Jen E.

Testimonial

Had my 3rd Tattoo done by Naomi. She did a fantastic job what I wanted. She very different compare to the other tattoo palours I been in the past in a very good way. Her studio is very clean, well presented and welcoming.

Naomi is very nice lady, very professional, very patience to her clients. She has good future ahead of her. She gives very clear instructions of the aftercare of the tattoos also she gives nice thank you pack with clear instructions of the aftercare to which is very kindly of her.

No doubt I will be returning for future tattoos and highly recommend for someone to have first tattoo with her.
