For the past 8 years in Milwaukee, tattoo enthusiasts, collectors, and artists have been convening for the Milwaukee Tattoo Arts Convention. This convention is held in September and is perfect for both the tattooed and the un-tattooed segments of the population or anyone who wants to get an up close and personal look at the world of tattooing. Tattoo conventions, which are held all over the world, can include other kinds of body modification practices. Many are now even including laser tattoo removal. So, what can you expect at a tattoo convention?
Many people attend a tattoo convention to get a tattoo. Artists from all over the world can rent out booths at the exhibit. Collectors may attend tattoo conventions to collect tattoos from certain artists or to meet and greet famous tattoo artist. Because attending a tattoo convention can be costly for the artist, plan to spend more money. Look for a blog post coming soon about tips for getting tattooed at a convention!
Some tattoo conventions offer professional development for tattoo artists or workshops. There are a variety of topics covered during the workshops, such as black and gray 3D tattoos, creating characters, or techniques and application tips.
Many tattoos host tattoo contests to honor and recognize outstanding tattoo art. There is usually an entry fee at the larger contests. The contests usually fall into categories such as “best portrait” or “leg sleeve.” If you are proud of your tattoo and want recognition for the artist, entering a tattoo contest can be a fun event.
