The Calgary 2018 Tattoo Convention is the last stop for our tattoo convention season! And what better way to close off the year than a trip to snowy Alberta, for the Calgary Tattoo and Arts Festival run by everybody’s favorite grumpy old man... Steve Peace and family.
The Calgary Tattoo and Arts Festival is one of, if not, the largest tattoo convention in Canada, boasting over 450 artists from around the world. This years show was loaded with talent, highlighted by the return of David Corden and Carlos Torres as well as a bunch of Ink Master artists who at this point are pretty much Canadian citizens. As always the weekend was kicked off with an ‘Adults Only” performance schedule that kept the crowds going well into the wee hours of the morning.
If you didn’t get the chance to see Circus Acts insomniacs, head on down to the BMO centre and check out the show, here is just a taste of what you missed (Adults only night images are blurred for your protection).
If that didn’t cut it, check out this video recap from our friends over at Inked Magazine
"We’ve been working the Calgary convention since its inaugural year, each year it gets bigger and badder, and I can tell you we are already looking forward to next year." Inked Magazine
Thanks again to Steve, Lindsay Peace and family (yes, @elporter this includes you!) as well as all our friends who swung by the booth to say hi. It never ceases to amaze me how much the artists working this show feel like family.
Till next year, stay warm Calagary!
