Ink conventions and tattoo shows are fundamental community gatherings in the ink scene! Tattoo artists display their art and creations with the world, while vendors make sure the latest inking technology and tools are at their disposal! Visitors can browse through artists’ portfolios, plan their next tat, show off their mods, score great discounts, and even get some walk up ink done!

Of course, tattoo festivals live up to their namesake, and are full blown festivals celebrating the art and life of the tattoo culture, the artists’ creations, and those who wear them proudly on their skin. Tatoo conventions like the Musink Tattoo Convention & Music Festival are a perfect example of the high impact, extreme events that shape the counterculture.

Tattoo Expos vary in size, audience, theme, and level of grunge. Internationally acclaimed ink conventions like the International London Tattoo Convention or the NY Empire State Tattoo Expo draw thousands of international artists from every background, hundreds of vendors selling the newest and safest needles, guns, and gear, and tens of thousands of visitors, enthusiasts, and canvases. Smaller Expos may be store run, featuring only a few selected artists and their work, for display. These smaller tattoo shows are great gateway opportunities for newcomers, and an awesome way to look at local art, while talking to the creators!
