Vancouver Mural Festival is drawing together 11 of Vancouver’s tattoo artists for a first come first served pop-up shop.
There will be no waiting on a month-long reservation list to get a tattoo (at least not during the event), only the potential of a line-up during the five hours the flash tattoo pop-up will be taking place.
Getting there early to reserve a spot in line is definitely encouraged.
The Vancouver Mural Festival takes place Saturday, August 12, features a craft beer garden, live performances by Yukon Blonde and Louise Burns Music, a T-shirt tie dye station, and the Holden Courage Memorial Graffiti Jam. The festival runs from noon to 6 pm.
Tattoo artists participating in the pop-up shop include Joel Rich, Moni Chi, Olivia Harrison, and more. The full list of artists can be seen below alongside samples of their work.
