The Scoop, according to Hellcity.com…
“Rain or Shine, Hell City is “One Hell Of A Good Time”! The Hell City Tattoo Festival is a tattoo convention put on by tattoo artists, featuring world class artists and collectors from around the world! Hell City brings you not only some of the world’s best tattoo masters, but also showcases many of today’s young, up and coming tattoo artists! It is much more than your typical tattoo convention though, Hell City is a one of a kind because we include many other activities that you won’t see at any other tattoo conventions.
If you have ever been to Hell City before, you have seen the massive crowds. The line that gathers before the gates even open looks more like the line to get into a sold out rock concert. Once inside, all that is Hell City will amaze your eyes, ears and skin. With everything from live entertainment on the main stage, to music, to free seminars, The Art Fusion Experiment, tattoo competitions every day, and the lovely Suicide Girls giving out the one of a kind trophies, you will want to stay the entire weekend at the Beautiful Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa! This is our new website with many new features to make your Hell City Experience that much more enjoyable! We encourage feedback from artists and members, your input will help shape the future of this social tattoo network!”
