PHOTOS: Choose your favorite tattoo artist before attending the Electric City Tattoo Convention
It isn’t easy choosing what your first – or next – tattoo will be, and it can be even more difficult to choose an artist to tattoo you. Events like the Electric City Tattoo Convention make this decision a bit easier, allowing attendees to view the work of over 140 artists from many different states before getting inked.
In preparation for the event, held April 17-19 at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center, the organizers from the Electric City Tattoo Gallery have been Instagramming tons of amazing examples of work by the artists who will be there, seen below. There are many more photos on the Electric City Tattoo Convention’s Instagram page:
