Come to the Chicago Tattoo Arts Convention at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont March 17-19, and stay at the nearby and affordable Elk Grove Chicago Hotel!
The Chicago Tattoo Arts Convention is not your grandma’s convention. Unless grandma is tatted up! There will be guest tattoo artists, entertainment, seminars on the art and business of tattooing, and heck, you can get a tattoo!
Tattooing is a serious and growing business. Attend noted artist Amy Shandick’s seminar, The Chemistry of Tattooing-Business Edition, and get tips on how to build a client base and forming artist-customer relationships. Enter the Tattoo contest and create a masterpiece on site, for judging.
