Rock the Ink is the cultural fusion of music, on-site tattooing, fine art performances, celebrity appearances, local band competitions, daily tattoo contests, motorcycle exhibitions and fashion.

Tattoo Dan is now taking appointments via www.tattoodan.com for this weekend. Other Adrenaline Crew members include Kenny, Turtle and Mike Jones. The concert/tattoo convention is 3 days long and expect lots of special guests.  We are staying at a Hotel right next to the convention center so you can rest assure we will be partying afterward.  We also heard they are filming for one of the “ink” shows as well.  Tattoo Dan will be slinging ink at  Bob Tyrrell’s booth.  Adrenaline Crew merchandise and DVD’s will be sold there with free autographs and posters.
