The Chicago Tattoo Arts Convention features guest artists, “freak shows,” booths, displays and. . . Surprise! Tattoos! And kids under twelve get in free! (Wouldn’t little Bobby look great with a Smurf tattoo on his arm?)
Special guests from the TV show Ink Master include: James Vaughn, Kyle Dunbar, Alli Baker, Big Ceeze, Aaron, Emily Eligado, Robby Ripoll, Halo Jankowski and many more! The Show Devils (acts) include: The Enigma, fire eater Marlo Marquise, Olde City Sideshow, Live Human Suspension (eew), Half Pint Brawlers, Mike Silver’s Tattoo Museum, Sacred Circles Art Installation and Carnival of Curiosity and Chaos.
And there’s more! Enter the Tattoo Competition, with its one zillion categories, including tattoos on almost every body part you can name! (Hey parents, little Janie can show off that rose on the back of her neck!) Tattoo artists will want to check out seminars on equipment advances. And at least a hundred artists will be on hand to permanently ink you up!
