Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20: Massachusetts Tattoo and Art Festival, Sturbridge Host Hotel and Convention Center
It's always an exciting time when we step out of Connecticut for a minute and visit one of our friendly neighboring states. This weekend, we will be attending the 5th Annual Massachusetts Tattoo and Art Festival, held in scenic Sturbridge, MA.
A tattoo convention, in Sturbridge? Sure, we know what you're thinking.
There will be live piercing and tattooing all weekend, primarily by Massachusetts-based artists. However, the lovely and talented Kelly Green (real name!) will be representing Connecticut, and I am excited to have booked a sitting with Khan, who comes all the way from Japan.
There will be vendors, contests, and live entertainment by bands that don't have websites and the Lucky Daredevil Thrill Show.
I like to think I am building towards my future with all these tattoos. Since I will probably never be able to afford retirement, my plan is to live my golden years as a circus sideshow attraction.
We encourage all of you to come out and get CT Scenic tattoos this weekend! Even if you're not ready to commit to that kind of amazingness (yet), it seems like there will be plenty to do if you're just interested in body modification, art, or some old-fashioned gawking.
