June 15, 2018 – The second annual Winnipeg Tattoo Convention is happening  August 24, 25 and 26 at Red River Exhibition Park. The three-day event is bringing more than 250 tattoo artists from across the world to showcase their art and talent with live tattooing in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This year’s event is expanding to include an outdoor showcase of bands, beer gardens, cars, motorcycles, a market and food trucks.

“Last year we had more than 6,000 Manitobans come out and we expect this year to be bigger and better while still showcasing some of the best tattooing the world has to offer,” says event coordinator Rich Handford who is a Winnipeg tattoo artist and owner of Kapala Tattoo.

This year’s lineup features renowned Canadian tattooers Steve Moore, Sam Smith and Anthony Tex as well as artists from Australia, Hong Kong, China, Sweden, California, Spain and several other states and countries.

Musical acts include Red Moon Road, Romi Mayes, The Perpetrators, The Noble Thiefs, Two Crows for Comfort and more.

The convention will, once again, be running its Marked for Life tattoo fundraiser booth which raised more than $13,500 for the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba last year. Volunteer tattoo artists staff the booth while participants get tattooed and donate the cost to charity. The booth will be first come, first serve for attendees.

Early bird tickets are on sale now at select tattoo shops. Day passes are $30 and weekend passes are $60. Those wishing to get tattooed at the convention can book with artists ahead of time or search for an artist at the convention.
