Tattooing is undoubtedly a major force in our modern culture. With roots reaching back to the beginning of recorded history, the tattoo art form has evolved into a fine art with a conspicuous presence in today’s world. Tattoo conventions have been a driving force behind the growth of the industry and have become large, dynamic, well-attended centers of trade, attracting artists, vendors and art collectors from all over the world.
The Rock River Tattoo Art Expo will combine aspects of these artist-focused events with the style of a larger convention, open to the public. The two convention floors will be filled with artist and vendor booths, with the artists showcasing not only tattooing but work in other mediums as well. Some booths will feature live painting alongside the tattoo booths. There will be additional vendor booths in some of the hallways and auxiliary spaces along with a museum exhibit showcasing some important tattoo artifacts including some of local significance.
Throughout the weekend there will be activity on the main stage including interviews, talks by high-profile speakers, a historical discussion, tattoo art critiques, and a daily showcase of work that was completed on the convention floor.
