The Humane Society of El Paso will be at this year's Star City Tattoo and Arts Expo! Get a new tattoo, a new furry family member and donate all in one trip! The Star City Tattoo and Arts Expo is evolving more and more every year into more than just a tattoo convention. Organizer Michael Alqassimi brings together a wide variety of entertainment, along with over 200 of the best tattoo artists in the world and a place where people can be educated on tattoos. The Star City Tattoo and Arts Expo also wants to make sure they also make a positive impact on the El Paso community. That's why this year they have special elements to the expo that the city will benefit from.

The Star City Tattoo and Arts Expo will be hosting “A Canvas Battle.” The 10 painted canvases from this event will sold in a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting the Ronald Mc Donald House Charities of El Paso, Texas. There will be a kids zone filled with drawing material and The El Paso Ghostbusters will also be making an appearance to help promote positive impact in the community, through their anti-bullying campaigns.

In addition to all those great things, Star City will also have the Humane Society of El Paso on site with their dog adoptions and taking donations. The Humane Society of El Paso is gearing up for one of the biggest seasons of the year, puppy and kitten season so they could use the extra supplies! When you come to Star City this year, bring a donation to help out this wonderful, local non-profit that does so much amazing work to help out neglected, abused and mistreated animals right here in the Borderland. You can check out some of their adoptable dogs on their website before you head out to the festival.
