It’s that time of year to show off your ink. The Saratoga Tattoo Expo will run again this year from Friday, April 22nd to Sunday the 24th. Visit the Saratoga Springs City Center at the Hilton Hotel to see an exciting lineup of local and international tattoo artists who will show their skills for attendees. Anyone over the age of 18 can book an appointment in advance to be tattooed or pierced by their favorite artist at the convention, and visitors of all ages are welcome to spectate!

Saratoga Tattoo Expo 2020 FlyerAs the weekend goes on, the expo will hold tattoo contests for awards and giveaways. The contests are based on a variety of different categories. These can include large or small tattoos black or color tattoos, best collection, tattoo of the day, and more.

Along with displaying one of a kind body art, the tattoo expo will have live music and entertainment. In years past, the tattoo expo provided singers, professional wrestlers, and even tribal belly dancers to perform for guests to enjoy!

Guests visiting from afar can receive a block rate at the Saratoga Hilton, where the convention is to be held, by mentioning the Saratoga Tattoo Expo.
