Located on the Second Floor of the Hyatt Regency
Be sure to descend to the second floor to check out all of the amazing vendors and artists that will be filling the new Hell City second floor ballroom!
If you’ve ever experienced Hell City, you’ll realize that the second floor of the festival is always booming with special events such as live painting, seminars, a tattoo theater and the fine art gallery, the Big Bar on 2, Hellywood and much more! As always, Hell City brings new and exciting events for the artists, collectors, enthusiasts and attendees and, every year, we listen to our artists and attendees as to what they would like to see at the fest. So, at the Columbus festival, we extended the room where the Wet Paint project takes place to create a brand-new second floor ballroom! This new and exciting addition to the second floor ballroom of Hell City now allows us to feature more tattooing as well as a variety of new shopping vendors including body jewelry, tattoo clothing, fine art prints, and various oddities that you won’t find any other tattoo convention!
New at Hell City Killumbus 2018! We’ve expanded our second floor ballroom to host even more extraordinary and talented tattoo artists! This will make 2018 the largest Hell City yet!
