Be sure to swing by the Fine Art Gallery to see Hell City artists take their art from flesh to canvas! Come feast your eyes on all of the incredible paintings that will blow your mind!




 This year at our 2024 Hell City Tattoo Fest we are honored to display an incredible body of work from the legendary tattoo artist Dave Tevenal. Dave is a Tattoo Artist and graffiti artist from Columbus Ohio currently tattooing at Momento gallery. His artwork defines the very foundations of tattooing and Graffiti art meshed together into his incredible style that is definitive of not only his fine art but also his tattooing. His tattoos are sought out by numerous collectors worldwide as many artists have tried to replicate his style from his influence on the tattoo industry.

Dave's work is influenced by comic books, pop culture, contemporary art, Americana and Japanese tattoo imagery. He has worked for Marvel Comics, Vice Media, The Hundreds and more. 


 Be sure to step into the Hell City WetPaint fine art gallery to not only check out the artwork of Dave Tevenal but also to be able to purchase an original for your collection. Dave’s art show will be every day of the 2024 Hell City Tattoo Festival in Columbus Ohio. For more information or to pre-purchase any artwork from Dave himself be sure to visit him HERE

Ohio 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!




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 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. Artists also must make sure their art is wired and ready to hang in the gallery. Also, be sure to check out our featured artist gallery openings below!
