Tattooing has long been a part of Kingston’s cultural landscape; from the classic street shops to today’s private custom studios. Kingston, Ontario is a vibrant waterfront city, with an engaged community of tattoo enthusiasts, artisans, students, military personnel and patrons of art and culture – making it the ideal backdrop for the Limestone City Tattoo and Arts Festival. We are proud of our home, and want to give artists and patrons alike the opportunity to experience what our city has to offer.
The 2nd annual Limestone City Tattoo and Arts Festival will be held on September 16th and 17th, 2017 at the Four Points by Sheraton, steps away from Lake Ontario in beautiful downtown Kingston. The festival itself will be an intimate event featuring 40 tattoo artists representing Canada, the USA and beyond. As there is limited space, the attending artists have been personally invited by the show creators. Each artist will bring a different style and flavour of tattooing to the convention, making for an eclectic group of artists, all available to create personalized tattoos for those hoping to acquire some unique body-art. There will be a variety of vendors as well, offering artwork and tattoo culture-related products for purchase during the weekend. The convention will include two days of tattooing open to the public accompanied by organized events, entertainment and after-show parties for artists and patrons alike.
Saturday 11.00am – 11.00pm
