Don’t miss this epic event!

Come stop by the Imperial Tattoo & Art Festival on April 6th-8th 2018 in Jacksonville, FL!  It will be held at the Lexington Hotel & Conference Center located on the South bank of the St. John’s River in downtown Jacksonville.

Top-tier Tattooers from around the globe will be creating premium body art in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. Unify Tattoo Company, former host of the North Carolina Cape Fear Tattoo & Arts Expo, is teaming up with Jacksonville’s longest established tattoo studio, Inksmith and Rogers Tattoo, to bring you an event like no other. The industry’s most elite artists are coming together, for one weekend only, to awe you with an unparalleled expo! 

Nick and Selina will have a selection of designs ready to go for anyone wanting to collect a piece from them, but they will not be setting appointments or doing work by request for the convention.
It will be strictly first come, first served, so get there early each day to secure your spot for THAT day!
*They will be taking CASH ONLY at the convention, so please, no cards!

Not only will there be some incredible artists there, but there will be a little friendly competition too!  Come show some support for Old Man Wagner and Selina Medina by entering your tattoo from them in one of the contests below! It’s $15 per entry and 100% of the contest sales will be donated to Camp Boggy Creek!!
