We have TWO kick ass shows planned for 2014: United Ink Summer Vibe May 2-4 at the Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY and United Ink Flight 914 September 12-14 at The Cradle Of Aviation Museum, Garden City, NY.
You may wonder why we would do two shows in such close proximity to each other, but know this, these shows are two VERY different shows with two totally different vibes!
Summer Vibe is a BIG show- approximately 300 booths. This show is a fun, fast paced event with your traditional one room convention setup. There will be artists from all around the globe including some from our own backyard. This show will be our LAST show at the Nassau Coliseum as it is being knocked down to be rebuilt. So we plan on making it a show to remember even more than usual!!!!
Flight 914 is called that for a very special reason. Did you ever tattoo under a vintage fighter jet? Or how about a space module? Well we do at Flight 914! The entire show goes down in an aviation and aerospace museum, in and around the exhibits. Also at our disposal is an IMAX Theatre, SMART BOARD classrooms for seminars, an outdoor stage and music area, and much more!! This show is a bit smaller – about 120 booths, and as a result more intimate, sort of like a “grown up” show… (not really…haha). With a focus on industry education, we offer many seminars and classes, as well as history and relevant industry movies and videos.
BOTH SHOWS will have a completely curated art gallery for you to submit art for show or sale, live artist fusion events going on all weekend and famous artists such as Francisco Poblet.
United Ink is a full weekend experience making sure you have plenty to do! We provide after party events and free shuttle service running from the host hotels to the convention venues and any after events. We also have a discounted rate for any airport pickup/drop-offs.
There will be suspension shows like nothing you have ever seen before and music and entertainment acts all weekend long. There will also be the standard offering of contests… with a few twists of course.

The Giants victory over the 49ers last week generated a lot of excitement, and in lieu of the victors moving on to face the Patriots in the Super Bowl, Tattoo Lou’s decided to host a contest yesterday ensuring that select participants would get a free Giants-themed tattoo at our St. James location.
One of the two chosen winners was 29-year-old Centereach native Jimmy Oliveira who arrived promptly at the shop, sporting signature Giants’ apparel from head-to-toe.
Joel was there to administer the tattoo, and as it happens, both he and Jimmy have been friends for quite some time.
“My friend Joel let me know that he was gonna be here, he knows I’m a huge Giant fan, so I got all decked out and came down to help celebrate my team and support them,” said Oliveira.
Prior to winning the contest Oliveira had never gotten a single tattoo done, but viewed the experience in a positive light knowing that he would be letting his admiration show when he watches this year’s Super Bowl live from the stands, thanks to yet another contest he won, awarding him tickets to the game.
“It was great having Joel do it for me, he’s a good friend of mine, it’s really nice and something I’ll have forever,” said Oliveira after his session was over. “It’s just a great thing to look down upon and hopefully it brings me some good luck.”
After admiring his finished piece, the Giants fan stated that he was confident that his team would ‘come out with a win’ and that he sees himself getting more ink done in the future.
Oliveira was ultimately very happy with his treatment at Lou’s and the excitement he felt from winning our contest was palpable.
“It was great getting it [the tattoo], it didn’t hurt at all and I look forward to getting my next one,” he said. “The shop is very nice, it’s very beautiful. They’ve got good people, and a very friendly atmosphere here.”
Join us tonight for the last Islander home game of 2011. The arrival of the World Famous Tattoo Lou’s Penalty Box has been met with great reception and its continued success relies on the help of our supporters. So, we welcome all Islander hopefuls and game attendees to stop by for a look at what we’ve got to offer. Namely, temporary and airbrushed tats for the kids, tees for both sexes and in all sizes, photo opportunities with our lovely Ink Girls and the chance to get a real tattoo or piercing during game time! Please remember that even though the current year is at an end, you can expect Lou’s to close out the remaining 2011-2012 NHL season as the official tattoo shop of the New York Islanders!
