The cultural status of tattooing has steadily evolved from that of an anti-social activity in the 1960s to that of a trendy fashion statement today. First adopted and flaunted by influential rock stars like the Rolling Stones in the early 1970s, tattooing had, by the late 1980s, become accepted by ever broader segments of mainstream society. Today, tattoos are routinely seen on rock stars, professional sports figures, ice-skating champions, fashion models, movie stars and other public figures who play a significant role in setting the culture’s contemporary morals and behavior patterns.
Ink Life is the only tattoo and music festival engineered to attract a mainstream audience. This event series boldly blazes its own trail, paying homage to working-class citizens, blue-collar workers, doctors, lawyers, technicians, and corporate officers who are all part of the mainstream tattoo culture. Each Ink Life event is a family friendly festival packed with live music, contest, raffles, tattooing, art demos, great food, and eye candy. This event series not only attracts large amounts of spectators but it keeps them engaged with Ink Life sponsors and vendors. This event series is not about following trends; this is an event series about a lifestyle that has soul, substance and history.
All Ink Life events are advertised and promoted correctly. Our advertising strategy consists of television, billboards, web media, press releases, social network sites, street teams and much more. The founder of Ink Life has an extensive sales and marketing background and realizes without proper advertising a successful event cannot happen.
Reputation and respect are everything in the tattoo industry. That is why Ink Life is an event series by tattoo artists, for tattoo artists. Hosted by the World Famous House Of Pain Tattoo Studio gives Ink Life major industry credibility and attracts the nation’s top tattoo artists.
