The Tattoo You Minnesota and Cloud-a-Scope Tattoo and Arts Convention gets underway on Friday, November 11 at the River’s Edge Convention Center.
Tattoo You has presented Minnesota some of the finest tattoo artists for 25 years and celebrated its Silver Anniversary at Grand Casino Hinckley in August, with over 100 artists and two huge contests.
The Tattoo and Arts Convention at the River’s Edge Convention Center will also feature tattoo art, contests, plus more than 100 artists. Doors open to the public at noon on Friday, November 11 and attendees will be able to purchase weekend passes for $20. Friday night’s entertainment will feature two Scarlette Revolver Burlesque shows - the first beginning at 7:00 pm and the next at 10:00 pm. Please note that this is an 18+ event due to the nature of the performance.
Tattooing and piercing continue at 9:00 am on Saturday, November 12, when doors re-open to the public. The tattoo contest judging begins that afternoon at 3:00 pm. Categories will include color size, black and grey size, portraits, lettering, hand tattoos, water color and cover-ups. All first place winners at Saturday night’s tattoo contest award ceremony will automatically qualify for the Best of Show Award on Sunday.
Don’t miss Saturday’s music headliner, City of the Weak. The dynamic and talented rockers from Minneapolis are scheduled to hit the stage at 9:30 pm.
The convention comes to a close on Sunday, November 13, but not before another jam packed day of events. Tattooing and piercing will continue throughout the morning and tattoo contest judging begins early in the afternoon. Sunday evening concludes with a grand prize drawing, as well as an awards ceremony for Tattoo of the Weekend and Best of Show.
