Event FAQs

Can I get tattooed at your convention?

Absolutely. A thousand artists from all over the world come for that very reason. To tattoo YOU!

How old do I have to be to get tattooed?

You must be eighteen with ID to prove that. If you are under eighteen you’ll need the consent of a legal guardian who must have proof that he/she is legally allowed to make this decision for you.

Can I bring my children?

Sure. Children under the age of twelve are admitted for free.

Do I need to make an appointment to get tattooed?

In a word…no. You can if you want to and it’s a good idea, but not mandatory. You can either contact the artist directly in advance or come down and look around. Find an artist whose work you like and book some time with him or her.

Can I get tattooed for free?

Sorry, no. This is how the artists make a living.

How much does a tattoo cost?

Buying a tattoo is like buying a car only less painful and less expensive. Just like cars, tattoos come in all sizes, colors and prices. Artists charge different prices based on the complexity and time it takes to tattoo you. Tattoos can cost as little as $75 to as much as $3,000.

I don’t want to get a tattoo. What else can I do at your convention?

Good question! There is a lot to do at our convention. You can shop for clothing and jewelry. Check out motorcycles or listen to music. You can people watch and meet celebrities and generally be surrounded by many friendly and awesome people.
