As tattoo culture has barreled its way into the mainstream in the past decade, tattoos have become more of a way of life than the passing fad they were once seen as. Those from all walks of life are offering up their body as a canvas for the world’s best artists to work their magic.

In addition to tattoos and piercing, Flight 816 will offer opportunities to meet and mingle with reality TV stars, internationally famous artists, tattoo collectors and models. Shop jewelry and apparel, get dolled up to enter the Miss Vixen Pin Up contest hosted by pin-up model Ms. Laura Lynn, and stop by the booths for Inked, Tattoo Society, Urban Ink and 247 Ink to show off your tattoos for a chance to be featured in world renowned magazines.

Artwork exhibited by The Artist Hanger and Fusion Project will be for sale, and there will be a charity auction for much of the art created by attending artists. Kids can enjoy getting their own temporary tattoos, as well as tons of kid-friendly entertainment, including art seminars and full access to the aviation museum itself.

Anyone can display their artwork in the Artist Hanger. If you are interested, contact blades@newyorktattoo.com or theartisthangerandfusionproject@yahoo.com.

Live art showcases will feature the work of globally recognized artists, including Dinotomic and Sean Yoro aka HULA, who will create large murals throughout the weekend along with other fun interactive art projects.
