In its third year, the Asheville Tattoo and Arts Expo is bigger and better than ever! With tattooing, music, art shows, pin ups, face painting contests and more, there is something for everyone at the show. 100 of the most talented and respected artists from all over the world will be tattooing at the Renaissance Hotel Friday March 14 through Sunday March 16. That will also be the site of the car show, hosted by Bootleggers Car Club, pin up contest by Pinups for Pitbulls and tattoo contests. You can sample our custom convention beer or Carriage House Moonshine and shop with our vendors.
This year we are expanding the show beyond the hotel. The Masonic Temple on Broadway will be the site of the Food Truck Showdown, the pop up art gallery featuring work by fine artists and attending tattoo artists and the live music Saturday night.
Serious tattoo collectors will appreciate being able to get tattoos from some of the best artists tattooing today. Be sure to check the artist list and book your appointment early. If you don’t want to get tattooed, you can enter your tattoos in our contests and win trophies for your artist. Check the contest page for rules and categories. The live music, pin up contests, car show, seminars, art gallery and food truck show down will provide entertainment at both venues all weekend long. Check the schedule to be sure you don’t miss anything! Asheville Tattoo and Arts Expo is a weekend dedicated to bringing artists from all across the country to Asheville and showcasing the best in tattooing, fine art and music that we have to offer. Be sure to book your room before they sell out!!!
