InkFest Live will descend on Raleigh, NC, for the first time in Tattoo History. Weekend Passes Available - Free Tattoo Raffles With Paid Admission

InkFest Live ( has inked a deal with the Raleigh State Fairgrounds to host the first ever tattoo expo to hit the North Carolina State Capital along with world-renown tattoo artists, celebrities, and live music in their Exposition Center.

The world's premiere urban-inspired tattoo blockbuster event lines up an unstoppable combination of talent:

  • Powerful music performances including DJ scratch battles and B-Boy battles
  • World famous graffiti pros strutting their stuff on an enormous 40-foot graffiti wall
  • An endless stream of Human Suspension shows
  • Custom cars and bikes

"InkFest Live is the undisputed future of tattoo expos, and the future is now," said Jose A. Martinez, creator and visionary for InkFest Live. "Typical tattoo events throughout the years have all been the same: a few tattoo artists and no clients. We've changed that: we have the best artists matched up with clients who are passionate about tattoos and the culture.

''We added amazing music and mind-blowing visuals like our graffiti wall, and the result is this perfect one-of-a-kind mix of adrenaline and artistic beauty. It's what tattoo expos are meant to be".

When asked what he thought of being in Raleigh for the first time ever, Martinez added, "We know Raleigh is going to be blown away by what we have to offer. We were just in Chicago, and they've never seen anything like it. The Raleigh tattoo scene will never be the same after this."

According to Martinez, "Tattoos are the poetry of flesh and blood - a visual testimony of our experiences that speaks to us in a language as indelible as the ink they're written in. InkFest Live is more than just another tattoo event or music venue - it's a one-hundred mile per hour visual poetry slam. Tattoos are the only possession you can take with you right to the end, and the best place to get one is, without a doubt, InkFest live."

Available at ( or at the door (Friday $15 || Saturday $20 || Sunday $15 || Weekend Pass $35). Raffle tickets to win free tattoos and piercings accompany paid admission.
