Over the two decades, the annual Boston Tattoo Convention has defined itself as the place to be for the best in tattoos and tattoo culture. World class artists combine with the best in music and performance that Boston has to offer, all situated right in the heart of the city in the Back Bay’s Hynes Convention Center. Whether you are looking for a fun way to spend your weekend or your next one of a kind tattoo, the Boston Tattoo Convention offers something for everyone.

The 2020 Boston Tattoo Convention promises to be the best year yet!

Looking for a new tattoo?  This is absolutely the best place to find your new artists and get inked. Yes, you can get tattooed at the show! You must be 18+ with photo ID. Check out our Artist Page to see portfolio work from some of our past & present tattoo artists.

In case that isn’t enough, the Miss Boston Ink competition brings together great ink, beautiful bodies and stunning personality to compete for the crown. Then, Saturday evening you can join artists and other convention goers at our free after party featuring live music and drink specials.

We are looking forward to seeing you and getting inked with you this year!
