Calling everybody in Utah who loves art, tattoos, piercings, food, beer, and fun! The Salt Lake City Tattoo Expo is here and you don’t want to miss it. This is one of the most prestigious tattoo expos in the country, and artists are coming from all over the world to be here. Not to mention all of the other vendors, artists, and concession stands that will also be attending.
This year’s expo will be at the Salt Palace Convention Center next weekend from the 17th through the 19th. There will be over 300 artists from over 150 different shops attending, but if you have your eye on a specific artist then we recommend you book with them ASAP. Walk-ups will be happening all weekend, but certain artists’ books fill up quickly, so reaching out to them via their shop is a great way to secure your spot. If you’re just planning on browsing or being spontaneous, then don’t worry–every style you could dream of will be represented. There will also be a daily set of tattoo competitions, with the winners announced in the evenings. So if you’re looking for a tattoo, dinner, and a show, you’ll have a blast.
If you’re not looking to get a tattoo, don’t worry; there will be plenty of other things for you to do at the expo. Aside from the different food, beer, and concession stands, there will also be vendors who will be selling original artwork, jewelry, clothing, and more! This event is also family friendly, so feel free to bring your kids! There will be special activities and areas set up specifically for the
The doors will be open to the public at varying times, so be sure to check the event calendar! Also please remember to bring your ID if you want to get a tattoo or purchase alcohol.
