The Philly Tattoo Convention's Got Way More to Offer Than Just Tattoos

Entertainment2 min Read

Here's our essential guide to all of the must-see happenings set to go down at this weekend's highly anticipated tattoo convention.

It should come as no shock that we’re pretty damn excited for this weekend’s 19th Annual Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention right in the heart of Philly. If anybody knows how to throw a party — um, I mean, business function — it’s the Villain Arts crew. Yeah, no, it’s a party. 

The convention is going to be filled with many other things, such as classic sideshow acts, comedy routines, celebrity appearances and death-defying antics like body suspension. 

Alakazam The Human Knot puts on a hilarious act consisting of both contortion and comedy. #alakazamthehumanknot #contortionist #sideshow #phillyconvention

There are pre-arranged after parties the entire weekend, boasting perks like discounted cover charges and drink prices with a convention stamp or wristband. From Philly staples like the appropriately named bar Tattooed Mom to a slightly different vibe over at Cheerleaders Gentlemen's Club — the folks over at Villain Arts have pretty much got you covered from morning until... well, morning.

What we’re trying to say is — rest up. It’s going to be a long, rowdy weekend and you're not going to want to miss a single second of it.
