A tattoo convention is a gathering of many tattoo artists and collectors who come together to share their artwork and create new pieces. Live tattooing, piercing, and a variety of different forms of entertainment serve as the main attraction, while vendors offer a plethora of goods for sale such as t-shirts, artwork, jewellery, and accessories. Additionally, daily tattoo contests, competitions, music, after parties and performances flesh out the schedule.
