The Seattle Tattoo Expo was formed with the primary goal of exposing new talent, showcasing existing fan favorites and providing enthusiasts with a gathering place to share their love for this enduring art form. Guests of the expo may schedule an appointment for a tattoo – or get one right there on the spot, pending artist availability of course.
In addition to seeking out potential tattoos, guests of the Seattle Tattoo Expo were treated to live music, side show acts, burlesque, and tattoo contests on the Main Stage. Take it over to the courtyard for the vendor village, concessions, beer garden, and cigar lounge (referred to as the Ash Hole).
The Seattle Tattoo Expo is an annual family-friendly event. Admission is free for children under 12 accompanied by an adult.
