Tattoo Expo in San Antonio Texas

Every year in San Antonio the Slinging Ink Tattoo Expo is held at the San Antonio Event Center. (visit for more info) This year was the 8th annual expo and was held on February 18-20. The expo is not only a great place to get tattoos from your personal pick of available artists, cheap piercings, coupons, special events, and watch bands like Drowning Pool, but there is also a contest to see which tattoo parlor is the best of the best. Over 200 artists from around the world compete over this weekend long event and Sunday night 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners are announced and awarded. Over 25 parlors remained in the competition on Sunday; narrowed down from the large number before. Most of them were local to the San Antonio area, but there were some from other parts of Texas and one from Las Angeles, CA still in the run. There was also a contest amongst event attendees for best tattoo as well as individual contests for free or discounted prizes. It is a great place to show off the tattoos you have or to get as many new ones as you dare in one weekend. If you are skeptic about finding the right artist you can watch other people getting theirs done and look through portfolios to ensure the best pick. If you missed it this year and are interested just check out the website to keep up to date on next year’s event.

In between competitions, we performed for thousands of people at venues such as the Twin Cities Pet Expo. After shows and competitions, many of the families would stick around to meet and pet the dogs.
