This week the Tattoo Lou's blog is dedicated to this weekend's United Ink tattoo and body art convention taking over Nassau Coliseum for three days of art, fun and rock 'n roll. Each day we'll be listing one of the top 5 reasons you will give anything to be there or regret it for the rest of your life!

 

REASON #5: ALL OF THE PREVIOUS REASONS AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!!!

Let's step back for a second and review. You have wall-to-wall vendors including a laundry list of the most celebrated names in the body art industry. You have burlesque, magic, music, art galleries, a beauty pageant, contests and endless other entertainment options. You have killer after parties that will keep United Ink rocking long after the expo closes for the night. You have The United Ink Awards and Official Tattoo Hall of Fame Ceremony (in case we failed to mention it 150 times), and there's even more. MORE you say?? Yes, didn't you hear us? Don't make us repeat ourselves more than we already are. Did we mention the LOUNGES, awesome places to sit, relax, have a drink, sign up for contests and enjoy live entertainment?? No?! Click on the link to find out more, but ultimately the only way to experience just how incredible all of this is going to be is to BE THERE!!

 

So, repeat after Tattoo Lou's:

"I ______, being the awesome, rocking, body art loving guy/girl that I am, do solemnly swear to be at Nassau Coliseum for United Ink, the biggest, baddest and best body art convention the world has ever known. I further pledge to party my ass off with no regard for work on Monday, and to make this the best three days of my life including marriages and births of children, though I reserve the right to lie about that to those I love in order to maintain a peaceful and harmonious home life."

Sorry dudes, but here's another opportunity that's only for the ladies, though we're sure you will gladly enjoy sitting this one out and watching the magic unfold.

 

That's right! United Ink, the center of the body art universe is also the home of many other forms of expression, from traditional visual arts to music and performance, including our Pole Dancing Contest, and you can get in on the action!

 

This sexy, naughty little competition will be hosted by the beautiful Heather Moss and  Ashley Schrader, and is sponsored by Xpressions.

 

Now, if you're concerned about nudity, no fear, there is none allowed. This is about the art of pole dancing, not turning United Ink into The Spearmint Rhino or the Cheetah Lounge. And for you more daring types, please note that nudity will disqualify you, so it's hardly a winning strategy. It's all about sexy attitude, which we encourage you to bring in spades!

 

Beyond that, please note the following:

-Contestants must be over 18

-Contestants must be female

-All contestants must fill out our application and release form to participate.

 

There is a submission fee of $25. For more info on how to register early, go HERE to the United Ink Pole Dancing Contest Webpage. Participants may also register the day of the event next to the Xpressions booth in the Rebel Ink Lounge on Friday during the convention.

 

Please be aware that showtime is Friday, July 27th at 7:30pm, so only register if you know you're going to be there, and make sure you get your entry in before we start!

"I was there from the beginning."

 

No matter what it is in life, there is somethng seriously cool about being there the very first time; being a part of the creation of an event, a movement, an institution that will change the course of an industry forever. 

 

That's exactly what the United Ink Convention is all about: We're not just putting on a show, we're taking a major step to bring the body art world to a new level of visibility and legitimacy in the broader culture of America and the world. 

 

The film industry has it's Oscars, music has the Grammys, Television has the Emmys, heck even ESPN has the Espys! Isn't it about time that we had our own way to recognize the best and brightest of our thriving industry? Tattoo Lou's certainly thinks so, which is why we will be hosting the United Ink Awards Ceremony as part of the United Ink Convention this July. 

 

The United Ink Awards is the first and only industry elite recognition ceremony for body art practitioners. We will be giving out top level awards for all sorts of categories, including: 

• artist of the year

• best new artist

• lifetime achievement award

• best realism

• best color bomb

• best biomechanics

• best traditional

• best neo-traditional

 

In addition to the Awards Ceremony, we will also be using United Ink to unveil the first ever official Tattoo Hall of Fame. Finally, there will be a place for us to honor all of the pioneers and visionaries who came before us, who paved the way for all of us in the body art industry. They dealt with fear, discrimination and countless obstacles to lay the groundwork for the rest of us, and now we're going to give them the recognition they deserve. A panel of industry experts at United Ink will be selecting the first class to be honored with induction to the Hall, creating a legacy that will span far into the future. 

 

Come join us, and be a part of history in the making at United Ink. Someday, when your kids and grandkids are talking about The United Ink Awards and The Tattoo Hall of Fame, you can just smile and tell them "I was there when it all began."
