Welcome to the 2nd ANNUAL SUMMER MOTOR CITY TATTOO EXPO

This summer, the Motor City will host our Second Annual Summer Tattoo event! In the heart of downtown Detroit, along the riverfront, high above the city in the towers of the Ren Cen, the tattoo world will come together for another epic ink gathering.

The Motor City loves a summer celebration. Join us for blue skies, grassy green lawns, warm summer breezes and the birthplace of American car culture. From August 17 – 19, both young and old tattoo artists, along with industry vendors, entertainers, clothing and ink devotees will be heading to Detroit. The expo is a cross section of the best in the tattoo industry. Traditional, Realism, Script, Black and Gray, New School and Old School artists all tattooing under one roof. With 170 booths and more than 300 artists attending, it will be an event everyone will want to attend.

Terry Tramp Welker will host the event this year at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center in the large ballroom.
