The largest tattoo expo in the Northwest, The Portland Tattoo Expo is the show that opened the doors to out of state artists looking to tattoo in the state of Oregon. After months of work with the state legislators, the laws were changed to allow artists from outside of the state to tattoo legally in Oregon.

Now in it’s 7th year, the Portland Tattoo Expo is the premiere tattoo event in Oregon. Over 300 award winning artists come each October to tattoo in the City of Roses. Email us for registration and licensing information.

  1. I would like to be a jewelry vendor during your show. Please tell me what course I take to get there.

  2. So how much does it cost I am from Minnesota but I don't mind ridding there to get @ least 10 more tattoos, full back chest and finish my sleeves.

  3. I want an amazing black and gray peice. Are there any epic tattoo artists. That can do realistic torn skin with wordsor tribal dragons

  4. Representing kansas and the Midwest , bryan parsons of addictions in ink will be showing off his skills…cant wait to get tattooed in a beautiful city like portland!

  5. Will anyone be representing 3D tattooing at the show? I've always wanted a Wizard of Oz Flying Monkey but must be a 3D representation of my artwork. Appreciate responses.

    Is there going to be any special guest appearances at the Portland Tattoo Expo this year (2013)? Tommy Montoya would be an excellent one. He does amazing work along with all of these talented artists, but I would love to add his work to my tattoo collection.
