About Paradise Tattoo Gathering
The Paradise Tattoo Gathering is an intimate tattoo convention hidden away in the hills of Western Massachusetts. Itís unique location will allow some of the worlds most talented custom tattoo artists to ply their trade in a focused relaxed environment amongst nature and insure that the convention is filled exclusively with truly motivated lovers of the tattoo culture. Education will be the primary focus of the events and themes of the weekend. Tattoo artists and apprentices will learn by getting tattooed, by watching many masters at work, and by the numerous educational seminars and panels taught by experts in the field of custom tattooing throughout the weekend. The public can learn all about the very best that tattooing has to offer as they see true masterpieces being tattooed right in front of their eyes. We will spend 6 months attracting custom tattoo artists, apprentices, and serious apprentice wannabees/collectors and as the convention nears we will also focus on tattoo collectors in a 4-6 hour radius tapping several regional tourism boards. We know that people will travel to get tattooed by talented artists, and in doing so we chose a unique location where there is no hustle and bustle, just peace and quiet and serious custom tattooing. and an alpine slide. 60 of the worlds best custom artists Educational seminars and panels teaching the art of tattooing Tattoo Videos and Movies Photography room for magazines Tattoo Contests sponsored by Pulse Live music at after hours party Alpine slide and roller coaster With only ~30 booths, we will gather a very select group of the finest custom tattoo artists, and do our best to pull out all the stops and promote the event to serious custom tattoo collectors every way we can.
