Attendees will browse through 150 booths and meet 250 of the world’s best tattoo artists as Tattoo Lou and Jackie Rubino has personally traveled the world to find what he calls the “cream of the crop” to bring back to Long Island for this incredible event.
As tattoos have become more than a passing fad over the past decade; gone are the days of the “bikers have tattoos” mentality, replaced by those who look at tattoos and the tattoo culture as a way of life. Now, everyone from corporate lawyers to working moms proudly display their ink and are excited to offer up their body as a canvas for some of the world’s best artists in any medium.
Completely open to the public and to all ages, and with a wide variety of things to do for all, it’s the perfect day for the whole family. The events live music sponsor, All Music’s Inc., will be showcasing some of the best local bands performing on an outside stage. There will also be contests, tattooing demonstrations, temporary tattoos for kids in an awesome kids area, art exhibits and more.
“Where else can you watch the world’s best artists pierce and tattoo, and if you’re in the market for new ink or piercings, let one of the globe’s most talented artists use your body as their newest canvas – right there on the spot” said publicist Rick Eberle.
“There’s plenty for the kids to do, too; United Ink will offer face painting, airbrush tattoos, coloring, a flash art contest and more for the little tattoo fans in your life. The best part? Kids from 2 – 12 years of age enter the convention for half price and this includes full access to the museum.” Eberle added.
