Seattle Tattoo Expo Returns in August

After a two-year-long hiatus, the Seattle Tattoo Expo is returning to the Seattle Center from August 19 to August 21 for an eccentric showcase and celebration of tattoo culture, history and the artists behind them. 

Hosted by Jeff Cornell of Hidden Hand Tattoo in Seattle, the Seattle Tattoo Expo allows visitors the opportunity to gain access in their city to some of the best artists in the world. The event will feature celebrity tattoo artists like Shawn Barber of Memoir Tattoo in Los Angeles; VyVyn Lazonga of Madame Lazonga’s Tattoo in Seattle; Shotsie Gorman of Tarot Art & Tattoo Gallery in Sonoma; and Big Gus from the hit TV show “Tattoo Nightmares” and Collective Ink Gallery. 

Seattleites and visitors alike will also have the chance to get inked by some of their favorite artists, network with fellow creatives, enjoy live music performances, grab a bite to eat at one of the many food trucks, learn more about the history of the art and much more. 

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased online.
