QUESTIONS ABOUT TATTOO CONVENTIONS

A tattoo convention is a meeting and exhibition for tattoo practitioners and enthusiasts, as well as for anyone who wishes to see and experience the art of tattooing. Usually tattoo conventions also offer a rich entertainment program, in the form of live shows, freak shows, live music, seminars, tattoo contests and pretty much anything else related to the tattoo culture.

This is a question which gets asked a lot, implying to offer skin in exchange for a free tattoo during tattoo conventions. While this totally depends on the tattoo artist and it may be possible on a few occasions, please note that in general the artist usually has have to cover travel, accommodation & booth expenses. It makes absolutely no sense to do all that effort for free.

The above leads to this other (very odd) frequent question. Unless you don’t have a special relation of agreement with the Tattoo Artist, there is no such thing as free tattoos at conventions. Instead expect to pay at least $100 an hour, when getting tattooed at tattoo conventions.

Usually tattoo events are organized by tattoo industry’s professional individuals and/or companies . They usually are famous tattoo artists, big tattoo suppliers or even tattoo media professionals.

For any questions or inquiry about tattoo conventions, we advise to directly contact the events organizers. Contact information are usually published on their WTE events pages, official websites and social media channels.

Generally YES. Entrance tickets, usually costs anywhere between $10 to $30+ a day. Most tattoo conventions offer a large variety of entertainment, side shows and the opportunity to get tattooed by some of the very best tattoo artists on the planet.

Tickets are always available at the door and many conventions offer also advance tickets online (often for a discounted price). On WTE you can usually find tattoo conventions selling advanced tickets. If you plan to visit a particularly busy convention, we strongly suggest to reserve your entrance tickets online.

One of the biggest advantages of tattoo conventions is that is possible to get tattooed by some of the world best tattoo artists. We strongly advise to contact (and book) your favorite artists as soon as you possibly can. The biggest names in the industry will have a very limited availability during conventions.

Making pictures at tattoo conventions is generally well accepted, unless otherwise stated by the organization. However use your common sense and don’t be too invasive when taking pictures.  Also try not to interrupt tattoo artists while they are working  (that would just be plain rude).
In any case always ask before taking pictures and you will be fine.

Most tattoo conventions allow kids entrance (usually for free). However in same cases (for example when conventions are offering show suitable only to an adult audience), children will not be admitted.

If you have to travel when you visit a tattoo convention, we advise to get a hotel nearby. If you plan to get tattooed, it will be much better if you have a place where you can rest (before and/or after) and where you could take care of your new tattoo. Normally tattoo conventions have discounted rates agreements with the local hotels (usually listed on the conventions websites). Otherwise we suggest to use websites as Hotels Combined to find some very competitive hotel rates. And remember: the earlier you book and the lower the price will usually be.
