Boston Tattoo Convention

August 29 @ 12:00 pm - August 31 @ 9:00 pm

The 14th Annual Boston Tattoo Convention will be held over Labor Day weekend at the Sheraton Boston Hotel (39 Dalton Street). The convention is a packed 3-day event with educational seminars, live tattooing, local and international artists galleries, performances, after parties and more.
The tattoo scene in Boston is thriving but few know that tattooing was actually illegal in Massachusetts for 38 years until October 2000. But the thriving creative indie scene that lives on in Boston helps Boston remain on the radar of many a well-established tattoo artist in the states and abroad.
