All weekend we are asking all attending tattoo artists to bring at least one piece of fine art with them to display at the convention. The fine art will be displayed in a gallery area right next to the sinema and seminar rooms dedicated to displaying other works of art from attending artists. Artists may sell their artwork or just present it for everyone to see. Artists must provide name tags for each piece of art stating the name of the artist and the studio they are with. Artists that wish to sell their fine art must provide pricing for each piece. Also, be sure to check out our featured artist gallery openings below!
