We look forward to the return of @hell_city in 2022 in both Ohio and Arizona! With the current state of the world dealing collectively with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone both of this year‘s @hell_city festivals for the safety of our artists and attendees.

We will be bringing you the same great @hell_city festivals in 2022, just not this year with the pandemic still going on and most likely affecting things for a while. We feel by this time next year, all of our lives will be back to normal, tattooing will be booming again, studios will re-open again and tattoo conventions will be packed with the amazing tattoo family worldwide that will be eager to see the entire tattoo family at conventions!

If you have purchased pre-sale tickets, booths or other items, your purchase is credited towards our 2022 show and we look forward to seeing you all back at Hell City 2022!

We look forward to seeing all of you hellions back at America’s favorite tattoo festival in 2022!  Please read more info below!
