Inkin the Coast takes place this weekend
Tattoo artists from all around the world are Inkin’ the Coast this weekend at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum and Convention Center.
The doors opened today for ink lovers to come out and enjoy piercings, live music, and tattoos.
Inkin the Coast also gives people a chance to get tatted by some of their favorite TV artists from shows like Inkmaster.
The event was first held ten years ago with hopes of creating harmony between local artists and bringing more harmony between local artists and bringing more revenue to the Coast. Voice of the Tattoo World Dr. Carl Blasphemy said, “Walk in the door, you get a smile instantly. You walk through find your favorite tattoo artist. You don’t need an appointment; you can walk right in and get a tattoo same day. In addition to that, we have some piercings. We have great merchandise here. We have a bunch of jewelry, clothing back in the back. We have reptiles for sale here this weekend. So, it’s more than just tattooing. You don’t have to get tattooed to have a great time here.”
Doors close tonight at 11 p.m. but will open Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 a day, weekend passes are $45. Children ten and under are free. All passes are available at the door.
