Welcome Tattooers!

Thank you for considering Fort Collins’s Tattooer Festival in Old Town Square Fort Collins. Below is a description of our goals for this festival as well as a schedule and registration information. Please be sure to read through all of the information completely.

Goals and Premises:

Rarely are tattooers mentioned in the same breath as Picasso or Van Gogh although many of these artists are worthy of such accolades. The goal of this festival is to expose our community to all of the amazing artists that reside within the walls of our local tattoo parlors.
Many of you have an extensive collection of compelling art that remains to be unseen. Our festival will give you a chance to exhibit and sell the work within your collection.
Registration ends August 9th.
Participants will be notified August 14th if accepted.
