Whether you're already inked, looking for ideas or just have an artistic eye, the rounds of competition at 208 Tattoo Fest are sure to spotlight something that peaks your interest—and expose you to some impressive masters of the needle. Featuring daily contests in different tattoo categories like traditional, Asian and ornamental design, as well as black-and-grey and color competitions by size, every kind of ink is represented over the festival's three-day run. Between competitions, explore vendor booths, soak in live music from guitarist Sarah Mendoza, meet featured artists like Looking Glass Tattoo's Justine Walters and Revolt Tattoo's Joey Hamilton, and even strut your stuff in a beard and mustache showdown.
