Think ink at New York convention
July 11, 2012 by Sarah
The United Ink Tattoo Show will be taking place at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on the weekend of July 27. The three-day convention is open to the public, with a $40 weekend pass available, along with day tickets for $18. There will be games, contests, tattoo demonstrations, art shows, entertainment, and much more.
The featured art show is the Dali Dynasty, which will be hosted by Francisco Poblet, who was a student of Salvador Dali. Reverend Butcher will also be on hand with his chainsaw ice show, sculpting large blocks of ice with his chainsaw in minutes. Some of the headlining tattoo artists who will be present include Bowery Stan, Philadelphia Eddie, Ron Russo, Hiroco, and Nozwtaka.
Attendees can also vote in the Miss United Ink Pageant to determine the next cover girl model for Rebel Ink Magazine. The contest is open for entry to any woman over the age of 18 who has tattoos. There will also be a B-Boy competition and viewers can vote on who they think has the best dance skills.
Finally, there will also be several entertainers present. Drita from the VH1 show Mob Wives will be making an appearance. The American Bombshells, a group of pin-up girl singers, will be providing the music and giving any profits to charity. The Coney Island Freak Show will also be on hand and there will be a mechanical bull.
Printing companies are likely to be hard at work creating flyers to draw people to this event. They will want to make sure that people in nearby areas like Mineola, Wantagh, and Levittown are aware of it.
