Since the late 1960’s graffiti has been a form of expression and became a new art form in the 70’s. During the early to mid 1980’s the writing culture deteriorated dramatically due to anti-graffiti campaigns. Since then, beautiful spray paint murals have been mainly underground. Well the wait is over; InkFest Live will tastefully bring it back to the limelight and provide a dedicated space for local and international street artists to demonstrate their skills. The graffiti scene has grown from tags and throw-ups, commonly associated with the art-form, to internationally acclaimed artists that redefine our perception of the art. InkFest Live supports these renegade artists and seeks to foster appreciation for their amazing masterpieces. InkFest Live will also feature a special art gallery where participating tattoo artists can display and sell their works of art.
InkFest Live features a large vendor midway to spotlight the newest trends in tattooing, urban fashion, and music. This vendor midway provides local and national companies direct exposure to their end customer and introduces the customer to new brands and products. The festival environment of the show will be strengthened by having a focal point for browsing and networking on site, rounding out the total experience for the spectator.
InkFest Live, the next generation of tattoo shows will be in a city near you soon, bringing you the best of tattoos & the urban lifestyle at last.
