Join us in California’s beautiful Capitol city of Sacramento for the “City of Trees Art & Ink Expo” which will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center.

Drawn from California’s richly diverse arts community, we come together bringing artists from all over the Country and the World.  This will not be your typical boring Expo where “Art” happens to be in the title. We are doing something different organically fusing Fine Art and Tattoo Festivals.  Hosted By Joe Swanson of Sullen Radio, we will be showcasing the absolute cutting edge of the contemporary art movement, which California’s Art scene is at the forefront of. We will have music, live painting/drawing contests all 3 days, with awards for each medium/category in addition to our daily tattoo contests.

We have some incredible handmade, traditional sugar skull awards made by Dia De Los Muertos Artist Rob-O for the tattoo contests. We will have seminars each day from both Fine Artists and Tattoo Artists if you feel like getting inspired to push your artistic limits. We will be celebrating & showcasing the true cutting edge of California’s diverse arts community. We have made it our mission to bring Sacramento the best Art & Tattoo Festival in California with best artists from around the world together in one place.

It’s time for an epic convention in our beautiful State Capitol, THE CITY OF TREES! We want this event to be about us and our arts community/family; where we come together for a great time, inspiring each other, meeting new people and old friends, sharing the art we love, relaxing and enjoying a great Afterparty!!!

  5. Hi, I am interested in setting up a booth to sell my art works, shirts, prints, patches, originals, etc. I am not a tattooer, I am an illustrator. Could I please get some info? I looked at the exhibitor-application and it seemed to be just for tattooers!?
    Thank you,

    Hey,i was wondering if there was any way to apply to be someone’s canvas, some expos have open applications for canvas volunteers so the artists can showcase their work.
