Ink Life Tour Albuquerque

Welcome to the world’s largest and most talked-about tattoo and music festival! This artist runs a three-day mega event hosted by the world-famous House Of Pain Tattoo Studio in El Paso, TX and MC’d by Dr. Blasphemy captures the true essence of the body art lifestyle. Ink Life Tour is by far the hottest event of its kind! Listen to great national bands while getting tattooed by some of the world’s best artists!

Please visit our attending artist page to get an idea of what artists you want to see. Many of them do not book appointments ahead of time. The best bet is to pick up a weekend pass, show up early Friday to check out all the artists’ portfolios, and speak with them about what you are looking for. This allows you to take your time and select the artist that is right for you and browse all the amazing portfolios. Remember a tattoo is the only thing you can take to the grave so never make a rushed decision on an artist.

Come get tattooed on the spot by over 200 of the world’s top tattoo artists like Amy Nicoletto from LA Ink, James Vaughn, and Clint Cummings from Spike TV’s InkMaster! These artists will be tattooing starting Friday and will continue all the way through Sunday. This is your chance to get amazing work for a great price. Once the doors open Friday, appointments with artists will go quickly. The best bet is to come in early Friday, pick up a weekend pass and check out their amazing portfolios and make your appointment! The best value is always a weekend pass so if the artist you like only has an opening for a different day, you do not have to pay two admission charges. It would definitely be the best option for those planning on booking tattoo appointments during the weekend!


Music at an Ink Life show is second to none! National bands like Days Of The New, Candlebox, Static-X, Bowling For Soup, Scum Of The Earth, Mushroomhead, Authority Zero, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Grind, Hawthorn Heights, and more have played on the huge Ink Life Tour stage! Not to mention the best local bands each town has to offer. Since Ink life supports the local music, at every stop you can see the best local bands play for a chance at a photoshoot with Tattoo Magazine photographer Inked Photograph in our band showcase! With the extensive local and national media coverage, Ink life is an amazing opportunity for band exposure!

Also, be sure to check out all of Ink Life’s outrageous entertainment going on all weekend. There will be performances such as the astonishing human suspension show that happens daily at Ink life! The world-famous Aztlan Arts will provide you with visualizations of the human body breaking barriers of what one thought to be impossible. Warning: this show by Aztlan is not for the squeamish.
