Valentine’s Day weekend is only a few days away. This year, instead of buying expensive jewelry, why not take your significant other to one of the largest and most popular tattoo conventions in the country. After all, diamonds aren’t the only thing that last forever – tattoos do too!

Our city is hosting the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention on February 13 from 2:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m., February 14 from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m., and Sunday, February 15 from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Philadelphia Convention Center (1101 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19107). There will be hundreds of artists and vendors on-site, as well as entertainment and tattoo contests.  Tickets, which are only sold at the show, are only $22 for a one-day pass and $45 for a three-day pass. Children under the age of 12 are free.

The entry fee for the tattoo contests is only $10. Their will be first, second, and third place trophies awarded, as well as plaques for the winning artist. And first, second, third, fourth and fifth place trophies awarded for Tattoo of the Day (for work done from start to finish on that day only).
