15th Annual Tattoo Arts Festival Inks Atlanta This Weekend – Friday, June 3 through Sunday, June 5, 2011
I have to admit, I was a little intimidated by the idea of checking out a tattoo festival. I am conspicuously un-inked and was sure I would stick out like a sore — er…pale and unadorned — thumb. But I was intrigued enough to head on over to the 15th Annual Atlanta Tattoo Arts Festival – and believe me, tattoo-enthusiast or not, I think you should, too!
Taking place this weekend – Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4, 2011, from 3:00 PM until 12:00 AM, and Sunday, June 5 from 12:00 noon to 7:00 PM – at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Powers Ferry Road, the Atlanta Tattoo Arts Festival is presented by Atlanta’s own Sacred Heart Tattoo and is three days of really visually stunning artwork.
The annual, three-day festival features world-class tattoo artists, offers live tattooing, seminars, book signings, vendors, contests, food, drinks and much more – and this year in honor of 15 years, there will also be live music on Saturday, June 4 and of course, there’s a bikini contest by the pool on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 PM – you don’t want to miss it!
One, two and three-day passes are available for the festival at $20, $30 and $40 – you can buy your tickets online by visiting the Atlanta Tattoo Arts Festival website. All ages are welcome and ages 18 and under get in free.
And because I like you so much, here’s a little preview for you:
