SHOW INFO

Tattooing has long been a part of Kingston’s cultural landscape; from the classic street shops to today’s private custom studios. Kingston, Ontario is a vibrant waterfront city, with an engaged community of tattoo enthusiasts, artisans, students, military personnel and patrons of art and culture – making it the ideal backdrop for the Limestone City Tattoo and Arts Festival. We are proud of our home, and want to give artists and patrons alike the opportunity to experience what our city has to offer.

The 2nd annual Limestone City Tattoo and Arts Festival will be held on September 16th and 17th, 2017 at the Four Points by Sheraton, steps away from Lake Ontario in beautiful downtown Kingston. The festival itself will be an intimate event featuring 40 tattoo artists representing Canada, the USA and beyond. As there is limited space, the attending artists have been personally invited by the show creators. Each artist will bring a different style and flavour of tattooing to the convention, making for an eclectic group of artists, all available to create personalized tattoos for those hoping to acquire some unique body-art. There will be a variety of vendors as well, offering artwork and tattoo culture-related products for purchase during the weekend. The convention will include two days of tattooing open to the public accompanied by organized events, entertainment and after-show parties for artists and patrons alike.

Saturday 11.00am – 11.00pm
Sunday 11.00am – 7.00pm

Limestone City Tattoo and Arts Festival 16 September 2017

It is with heavy hearts that the Limestone City Tattoo Arts Festival Collective and the Foundry Tattoo announce the retirement of the Limestone City Tattoo and Arts Festival. After much difficult deliberation, we've decided to close the books on this project and focus on other things.

We'd like to express our deepest gratitude to all of the people who supported the festival and all of the activities leading up to it. A HUGE Thank You goes out to:

*City of Kingston for welcoming us with open arms
*The visual artists, vendors and entertainers
*Our awesome volunteers and anyone who gave their time and effort
*Four Points Sheraton for providing us with a great space to showcase the artists
*The generous sponsors who supported the Festival including Eikon Device, City of Kingston, Visit Kingston, Downtown Kingston, Kingston Arts Council, Black Dog Hospitality, Motosport Plus, K-Rock and so many others.

We would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You" to the Tattoo Artists who attended and forever left their marks on Kingston and the surrounding area. Thanks for your commitment, support and for sharing your amazing talents with our community.

Lastly, thank you to each and every patron of the festival, your enthusiasm and support made this event possible.

We're very proud of what we accomplished in 2016 and 2017. We hope you'll look back on LCTAF and remember the incredible art, people, wholesome fun, and sense of community that came with it. We sure will.

All the Best.
