The Seattle Tattoo Expo was created with the primary goal of showcasing new talent, welcoming existing fan favorite artists, and providing enthusiasts with a gathering place to share their love for this historical art form. Over the years, the Expo has exposed Seattleites to hundreds of artists from around the world and thousands of people have come out to soak it all up since its first iteration.
Earlier this year, Seattle Tattoo Expo lost Jeff Cornell of host shop Hidden Hand Tattoo. In light of Jeff’s passing, a portion of every ticket sold for this year’s expo will go to support his children.
