For the first time ever, an international tattoo competition is coming to Calgary.

The Calgary Tattoo & Arts Festival will feature artists from all over the world going head-to-head for cash, prizes, and tattoo glory.

This isn’t the first time the festival has come to the city – it’s now in its third year and has doubled in size since the inaugural event – but this will be the first time a major competition comes with it.
