If you’re looking to add some more ink to your body, or you just appreciate the art, Montreal’s tattoo festival is on its way back to the city for its 16th edition in September.
The convention promotes tattooing and brings in over 100 artists from all over the world in to celebrate the art and its surrounding community.
Artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and the rest of Canada will be on hand for the festival and their work speaks for itself:
From traditional Japanese tebori to realism, artists will be showcasing some of their best designs.
Thousands of tattoo hopefuls will be on hand and appointments and meetings with the artists can be made through the Art Tattoo Show website.
The festival isn’t exclusively for people wishing to get tattoos, the venue will host tattoo art exhibitions, seminars and workshops for people interested in a tattooing career.
The festival is free to enter and tattoo prices vary depending on the selected project. The tattoo artists will also have hundreds of flash designs to choose from on-site.
