It’s that time of the year again and we are proud to announce that Authentic Arts will back in attendance at this years annual United Ink Flight 816 Tattoo & Art Festival. Last year was a great success and we had an incredible time. We tattooed a ton of awesome new/returning clients and even had some artists place/win the tattoo contests.

However, to make things easier this year we have put together this guide for those looking to attend the event as well as get tattooed by the artists here at Authentic Arts Tattoo.

Authentic Arts Artists in Attendance:

[minti_alert type=”warning” close=”false”]Walk-in tattoos are welcome but we highly suggest reaching out to the artists prior to the event to schedule tattoos as they have already begun to take appointments for the event.[/minti_alert]

Please note: The actual shop will be closed the entire weekend of this event.

Giveaways at The Authentic Arts Booth:

We will be giving away free Authentic Arts t-shirts to all those who stop by the booth and say hello. We will also be giving raffle tickets to all those who get tattooed at the convention by one of our artists for a chance at a $400 Tattoo Gift Certificate!
