Twenty-year veteran tattoo convention organizers and promoters, Villain Arts, will be bringing their World Famous, star-studded, traveling Tattoo Convention to Tampa for the 5th time this October. The tattoo and art exhibition boasts hundreds of the finest professional tattooers, tattoo memorabilia and a curiosity-themed carnival of sideshow performers, scheduled to arrive this October 12th – 14th, 2018, it was announced today by Troy “Tattooed Kingpin” Timpel, owner of VillainArts.com and traveling tattoo artist/conventioneer.

World Renowned Tattoo Artists from Hundreds of Tattoo Shops Nationwide will be tattooing live at The 5th Annual Tampa Tattoo Arts Convention.

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. This year alone Villain Arts has added four major cities to its annual convention circuit in addition to Houston, including Denver and Miami. 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.

Winners, Finalists, and Runners Up from long running SPIKE TV tattoo competition reality-TV show Ink Master will be appearing and tattooing at the First Annual Houston Tattoo Arts Convention.

Since founding the Villain Arts organization, Troy “Tattooed Kingpin” Timpel, has grown the original Philadelphia Tattoo Convention, organized twenty years ago by tattoo legend Crazy Philadelphia Eddie, into a fifteen city and growing national tattoo tour known for drawing upwards of thirty thousand attendees over the three day weekend of tattoo contests, performance art, live painting and events that showcase the creators and contemporary artists that work in body modification trades including tattooing and traditional tattoo flash painting, piercing, extreme body modification and suspension, unique vendors and fine art.
