Twenty-year veteran tattoo convention organizers and promoters, Villain Arts, will be ushering in for the 9th year, their World Famous, star-studded, traveling Tattoo Convention. The exhibition boasts hundreds of the finest professional tattooers, tattoo memorabilia and curiosity themed carnival of sideshow performers this March 23rd-25th, 2018.

The sprawling exhibition has made over two decades of annual appearances nationwide, and in other major US cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Kansas City, to name a few. Among hundreds of internationally renowned tattoo artists are also unique vendors, peddling rare and unusual merch for subculture enthusiasts and tattoo art collectors. The Villain Arts Conventions traditionally include a number of appearances by celebrities from movies and reality-TV tattoo competitions, like Ink Master, Best Ink and Tattoo Nightmares. Visiting artist seminars for professionals in the tattoo industry are also a feature at the shows, and include topics on social media/marketing, technical tattoo application techniques for working artists, and Q & A's with longtime tattooers and legends in the business.

Since founding the Villain Arts organization, Troy «Tattooed Kingpin» Timpel, has grown the original Philadelphia Tattoo Convention, organized twenty years ago by tattoo legend Crazy Philadelphia Eddie, into a fifteen city and growing national tattoo tour known for drawing upwards of thirty thousand attendees over the three day weekend of tattoo contests, performance art, live painting and events that showcase the creators and contemporary artists that work in body modification trades including tattooing and traditional tattoo flash painting, piercing, extreme body modification and suspension, unique vendors and fine art.
