Phoenix Tattoo Shows

Conventions and Events for Tattoo Lovers

By

A tattoo show or convention affords participants a great opportunity to meet a variety of tattoo and piercing artists all in one place. You can get a tattoo, pick out a tattoo design for a future appointment or just browse and enjoy the people and the entertainment. They are generally two or three-day events.
