The first annual event will have several local and out of town tattoo artists, vendors, designers, and crafters covering over 36,000 feet of the State Fairgrounds for a exciting two day event.

Scream & Ink will include tattoo contests covering several disciplines of artists work during the show, visual artists demonstrations, Horror themed vendors, movie cars and celebrity guests. Similar to Cherry City Comic Con, the celebrity guests will offer autograph signings, panels and photo ops for all fans in attendance. Last but not least, the beautiful touch of the pin-up culture will be a big part of the show. With the increasing popularity of pin-up; there will be pinup workshops, panels, guests artists, and even a horror inspired themed pinup fashion show on Saturday evening.
