DISPOSABLES:

HELL CITY IS AN ALL DISPOSABLE TATTOO CONVENTION!

AS WE LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER GREAT YEAR AT THE HELL CITY TATTOO FESTIVAL, WE WANTED TO REACH OUT TO ATTENDING ARTISTS REGARDING DISPOSABLE TATTOO PRODUCTS. SINCE DISPOSABLE TATTOO EQUIPMENT IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE WIDELY USED WE WANTED TO TRY TO MAKE HELL CITY AN ALL DISPOSABLE EVENT. HELL CITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PIONEER IN BRINGING NEW IDEAS TO MAKE THE SHOW THE BEST IT CAN POSSIBLY BE, SO WE THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE PERFECT SENSE TO LEAD THE WAY FOR DISPOSABLE PRODUCTS BEING USED AT TATTOO FESTIVALS. WE WILL NOT HAVE AN AUTOCLAVE AVAILABLE FOR USE THIS YEAR AND REQUEST THAT EVERYONE PLAN ON USING DISPOSABLE TUBES AND NEEDLES THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND OF THE SHOW. WE'LL HAVE PLENTY OF SUPPLIERS ATTENDING OR YOU'RE WELCOME TO BRING ALL YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCTS WITH YOU TO USE.
