Derby Ink Invitational

19 April - 21 April 2013

Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center
2300 North Cameron Street
Harrisburg, PA 17110
United States

Formerly known as the InkMe Tattoo Convention. Mind-blowing artistry. Ruthless derby action. Rock it with lots of music and mayhem, and you’ve got one of the biggest, baddest conventions to ever hit The States. The brainchild of the team at Derby Ink, the epic 3-day Derby Ink Invitational combines a top-tier roller derby tournament with a tattoo convention and rock concert all rolled into one.

Unlike any event anywhere, the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA sets the stage from April 19 – 21, 2013 for melding various forms of art and entertainment. The main events will be highlighted by a 500+ tattoo-vendor expo featuring over 200 of the greatest masters of tattoo artistry worldwide; a banked-track roller derby tournament with $20,000 worth in cash prizes; and two live rock concerts headlined by some of the top names in music.

    You should get The Approach and The Execution to play the event. They hail from the mighty Norseland of Cleveland, Ohio and would love the opportunity to come and headline the event. You can check out their videos for the songs the Plague knows no prejudice and To death To hell on youtube. These guys are super talented and deserve a spot at your show.
