Welcome to the second annual Tattoo The Lou Convention held in Historic Downtown St Louis! A collection of internationally renowned artists and hometown heroes right here in the Show Me State! St Louis, The Gateway to the West, is rich in tattoo history being one of Bert Grimm’s, original shop sites. It’s pivotal location made it ideal for tattooing because it was a destination for soldiers who were stationed at the army base in Lemay Ferry and Riverboat Sailors on both the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

Tattoo The Lou is a cross section of the best in the tattoo industry. All styles, from Traditional, Realism, Script, Black and Gray, and New School artists tattooing under one roof, with 78 booths and more than 100 attending artists, this is an event that is not to be missed.

Come and get tattooed and take part in activities and entertainment with us! If you see any of the attending artists you would like to get tattooed by, it’s a good idea to book with your artist in advance, you can do that by clicking the attending artists studio link. Be sure to reserve your room at the beautiful City Center Hotel to take advantage of room rate discounts, discount availability is limited! Tickets are available at the door only and military discounts are available!

After years of traveling and meeting thousands of artists around the world, LT Woods, a native Missourian wanted to give back to his home and to enrich his city with some of the world renowned artist he met along the way. This is a local show with talent from all over!

Our mission is to bring the highest standards in the tattooing together to give you an opportunity to experience tattoo culture at its finest.
