Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
This three day mega-event features world-renowned and local tattoo artists competing for the Best of Show award and an exclusive feature in Inked Magazine. In addition to 200 of the world’s best tattoo artists, this event also includes a Battle of the Bands competition with a $2,000 cash prize, LA Ink’s Amy Nicoletto, an incredible human suspension show by Atzlan Arts, insane sideshows, live tattooing, tattoo contests, and live music performances by Gemini Syndrome, Kreep and Reno Divorce.
Ink Life Tour is not your typical tattoo convention as seen in the past. Ink Life Tour is the only tattoo and music festival designed to attract today's mainstream audience of tattoo enthusiasts, unveiling the latest tattoo trends from local and nationally acclaimed talent. As an added bonus, attendees may present their ticket stubs to any participating tattoo artist to guarantee a $20 discount for tattoos inked on location.
"Twenty years ago, we couldn't pull this kind of an event off," says George Galindo, Ink Life Tour operations manager and owner of the world famous House Of Pain Studios in El Paso, TX. "A negative stigma surrounded tattoos and body art in the 20th century. But, in the last ten years, the tattoo industry has become one of the six fastest-growing retail businesses in the United States. Ink Life [Tour] strives to accommodate this new thriving market with an entrepreneurial spirit."
At the Denver event, participating tattoo artists will compete for bragging rights and trophies in over 20 categories. Several national publications will be covering this exciting event and featuring winning artists including, but not limited to, Tattoo Magazine, Inked, and Tattoo Society.
Also appearing that same weekend at the National Western Complex is Fight to Win “Invaders”. Including 9 pro MMA bouts, the event rages in appeal to both MMA fans and the Ink Life Tour audience. Packaged tickets will be available for all those interested in attending both events; more details TBA.
The event will be hosted by two nationally recognized tattoo shops: George Galindo's world-famous House of Pain of El Paso, TX and Chico's Marked 4 Life of Miami, FL.
In Denver, Ink Life Tour continues its search for undiscovered talent with a Battle of the Bands competition. The winning band receives a $2,000 cash prize and a chance to battle for a spot on the 2012 Ink Life Tour.
