Thanks to the thousands of Manitobans (and people from neighbouring provinces) who made our 2017 convention a huge success. We are busy planning a bigger and better convention for summer 2018. Check back for ticket info later this spring!
Kids 12 & under are free. Advance tickets will be available in June 2018. Full price tickets are also available at the door of the event. The convention is taking place at Exhibition Place, Red River Exhibition Park (3977 Portage Ave).
How to get tattooed at the convention
You must be 18+ to get tattooed at the convention.
Book an appointment ahead of time or look for a tattoo artist to do a tattoo on the spot at the convention.
To find an artist we suggest looking through our artists page and the artists’ Instagram feeds. Find someone whose style you like and think might be a good fit for you and your idea.
Contact the tattoo artist of your choice via email to make arrangements with them. Helpful information to provide includes putting ‘Winnipeg Tattoo Convention’ in the subject line and outlining what you are looking to have tattooed, the size, and the location on your body. You can talk about expected costs and any other questions you might have.
Getting Tattooed on the Spot
There are going to be many artists on hand, ready and willing, to tattoo you at the show. Walk around, check out all the booths and find an artist to do your tattoo. Bring some photos or reference materials for your ideas, or just leave it to the expert to draw up something awesome for you. The artists might need a bit of time to draw but you will be on your way to getting tattooed asap.
