This weekend, August 3rd, 4th and 5th, the 2018 Pagoda City Tattoo Fest is being organized by Justin Weatherholtz! Held in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania at the Crowne Plaza Hotel this is an event not to be missed. The truly special thing about this convention, in particular, is that Pagoda pulls together artists who are more like family than friends. The connectivity between all the artists and shops is partly what makes it such a great time. It is an event that spotlights the awesome art form of tattooing and the mutual love for tattoos felt by all who attend; the overall support and community aspect is felt through the artists and clients who come to the Crowne Plaza to be a part of Pagoda.
While Tattoodo will be there covering the event, several of our ambassadors and favorite tattooers will be as well! Artists from Kings Ave, including Zac Scheinbaum, will be there, as well as Tim Hendricks, Big Meas, New York Adorned, Diego Mannino from Daredevil Tattoo, Matt Bivetto, Jason Ochoa, and a ton of other super talented, chill af artists. We'll be filming tons of Sessions and Inkounters, so if you're there getting tattooed come say hey to me! We'd love to get your favorite tattoo story, strangest tattoo experience, or best tattoo tale on camera!
Not only are a ton of incredible artists coming from far and wide, but there will also be an exhibit of Ichibay's artwork. Known around the globe for his Japanese artwork founded wholeheartedly in the traditional Irezumi techniques, folklore, and design motifs, this exhibit will include many original works, as well as two exclusive prints for sale. Many vendors will also be in attendance, including Mike and Mary Skiver's Tattoo Museum, Silverstill Tin Type Photography, Kingpin Books, and more. Pagoda City Tattoo Fest is about supporting the arts, the artists, and the creative community with inclusivity, positivity, and authenticity. We'll be there, and we hope you'll join us!
