You can find tattoos on many a Montrealer, nearly everywhere in the city, but come September, the ink'd of Montreal will all gather together in one place for Montreal's 12th Annual Art Tattoo Show. Running from September 5th to 7th, the tattoo festival will be a showcasing of all things body-art, along with a bunch of cool features for those who aren't even into tattoos.
To be held at the Gare Windsor (map) downtown, the 12th Art Tattoo show will feature about 200 tattoo artists from around America, Asia, and Europe, giving you the chance to meet, and get tattooed by, some of the most talented tattoo artist the world has to offer.
Tattoos aren't for everyone, making this tattoo-fest the perfect place to get acquainted with the culture if you're skeptical. Over the three days, live music, live painting, art exhibitions, and burlesque shows will be going on, so there will tons of entertainment anyone can enjoy.
