With the “taboo” nature of tattoos having dissipated in recent years, the once discreet culture has now gone mainstream with more and more looking at tattoos as not only an art form but a way of life. Everyone from younger generations to older, businessmen, corporate lawyers, mothers and fathers are able to proudly display their ink and offer their body up as a distinct canvas to some of the world’s top artists in the medium.
Check out all of the great attending artists here! The best bet is to pick up a weekend pass, show up when doors open Friday at 2 p.m. and check out all the artists’ portfolios and speak with them about what you are looking for. The best value is a weekend pass.
Featured artist Ryan Ashley Malarkey—the first female artist to win this past season of Spike TV’s Ink Master—will be bringing her incredible talents to this year’s expo, where you can find out what it took for her to be the last contestant standing and win one of the most coveted titles in the world!
