Tattoo Contest

As is traditional and wildly popular at every “top shelf” Tattoo Expo, our P.I.A.E. ‘Ohana stages numerous Tattoo contests each day of our 3-day Expo. Want to show off your finest and most bad ass tattoo artwork? Want to compete against the best of the best? This is a chance day after day to have your work judged by some of the most formidable & most famous tattoo artists all of whom are appearing & tattooing throughout our 3-day Expo. Our wildly popular contests are held on the Main Center Stage to huge crowds several times a day throughout our 3-day Expo. Entry cost is very modest & affordable, allowing most artist to enter a bunch of their best art day after day. The maximum number of contestants is usually no more than 20, and it’s always smart to sign-up (in person only) & pay very early to insure a spot and the opportunity to join in on the fun. Checkout the Main Stage Entertainment/Merchandise booth (at the vibrant P.I.A.E. pop-up tent) for all the exciting details and the most current contest schedule.
