The 2012 Seattle Tattoo Expo is just around the corner, Friday – Sunday, August 10 – 12. With lectures, featured artists, tattoos and piercings and contests, it’s the place to be if you are thinking of getting a new tattoo.

There will be dozens of amazing and talented artists at the 2012 expo from Washington and around the country. If you want some fresh ink, this is the place to do it. Look over the list of featured tattoo artists HERE and make plans for your new tat!

All the tattoo artists at the event will be licensed with the State of Washington. And during the event, all the Tattoo and Piercing booths will be inspected by the Seattle Tattoo Expo’s Health and Safety Coordinator, the King County Health Department and the WA State Department of Licensing to ensure that your new tat is being done by a licensed technician in a safe and healthy manner.

Have some ink regrets? Believe it or not, some regrets can be fixed! Caddells Tattoo Removal from Bellevue will be at the Expo. Set up an appointment and see what they can do for you at the Caddell booth.

There are three-day passes and single day passes for the expo. Or you can opt for the 3-day VIP pass, which includes three days at the Expo, Admission to Neumos after shows on Friday and Saturday, and VIP Gift Bag. Purchase your tickets online HERE.
