It’s the most Seattle-y weekend of the year this weekend as both Tattoo Expo and Hempfest are happening!

Hempfest doesn’t send me press releases (stupid high hippies) so we’re done talking about them. 

(Also: they smell skunky.)

But, Seattle Tattoo Expo always sends me p.r. so hooray for them!

It’s the 18th annual Expo and it’s happening Fri/Sat/Sun at Seattle Center’s Exhibition Hall, 301 Mercer Street this year. As usual, you can expect hundreds of artists to be on hand and hundreds of people GETTING new tattoos as well as swell entertainment from artists mostly covered in tattoos.

Even the milkshakes and ice cream cones are covered in tattoos!

EVERYTHING will be tattoo’d this weekend!
