The 9th Louisville Tattoo Arts Convention

Twenty-year veteran tattoo convention organizers and promoters, Villain Arts, will be ushering in for the 9th Louisville Tattoo Arts Convention, their World Famous, star-studded, traveling Tattoo Convention. The exhibition boasts hundreds of the finest professional tattooers, tattoo memorabilia and curiosity themed carnival of sideshow performers this April 03rd-05th, 2020.

The sprawling exhibition has made over two decades of annual appearances nationwide, and in other major US cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Kansas City, to name a few. Among hundreds of internationally renowned tattoo artists are also unique vendors, peddling rare and unusual merch for subculture enthusiasts and tattoo art collectors.

The Villain Arts Conventions traditionally include a number of appearances by celebrities from movies and reality-TV tattoo competitions, like Ink Master, Best Ink and Tattoo Nightmares. Visiting artist seminars for professionals in the tattoo industry are also a feature at the shows, and include topics on social media/marketing, technical tattoo application techniques for working artists, and Q & A’s with longtime tattooers and legends in the business.

  • AVA Tattoo Machine
