Steel City Tattoo Convention

Each year, visitors from around the world come to Pittsburgh to celebrate international artwork. There's just one catch: the drawings and portraits here are on the attendees' skin. The Steel City Tattoo Convention—presented by prolific tattoo artist Shane O'Neill—draws in more than 70 featured artists from as far away as France and Sweden. They not only showcase their previous works, but also tattoo new creations right on the convention floor, creating a chorus of buzzing needles that should confound any bees within city limits. The onsite tattooing is convenient, since it allows for last-minute entries into the convention's contests, including "Best Sleeve" and "Best Portrait Color."



Tips

  • “Great convention! Had an excellent time. WAY better than the old and tired Meeting of the Marked. ”

  • “Go but bring cash for a tattoo. Makes it much more entertaining. ”

  • “A must for anyone with ink.”
