Almost 200 tattoo artists made their way to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for the ninth annual ‘Inkin’ the Coast.’
The tattoo and arts festival brings artists from around the world, including many of fan favorite TV personalities from shows like ‘Ink Masters’ and more.
‘Inkin’ the Coast’ also includes a beard and mustache contest, tattoo contests, clothing, art, jewelry, and many other vendors.
Event emcee Carl Blasphemy says this is an amazing opportunity to show off really creative tats and getting to interact with the community. “It’s very cool to see people come through the door with a smile on their face and anticipation of getting some great art work and hooking up with their artist because you don’t need an appointment. You can walk right in and get tattooed on the spot just find your favorite artist in the room. The support we’re getting from the community is tremendous.”
It is $20 for adult day passes and kids ten and under are free.
