SEATTLE – Some of the best in the business will gather at Seattle Center starting Friday. They’ll bring their gloves, their portfolios, their inks, and their needles. These people are artists, and they’re serious about showing off the best artists in the Northwest.

Friday is day one of the 13th annual Seattle Tattoo Expo. Artists from the Seattle area and beyond have applied for and been accepted to be a part of the event, which will attract thousands to Seattle Center over the course of the weekend.

Seattle Tattoo Expo founder Gloria Conners says this is all about the artists.

“In the beginning, there weren’t a lot of tattoo expos this size in the country,” Conners tells KOMO News. “We were hitting numbers in the thousands, and you just didn’t see that.”

Hear more about the event, and meet a local couple who will be part of this year’s expo by listening to the full story in the link above.
