Events are finally back in El Paso and a new tattoo convention will be happening next month on the east side of El Paso.

We've missed seeing people in person and attending events that we're normal activities during the year. Last year many conventions and expos were canceled and postponed due to the pandemic but now they're coming back and people are eager to come out and support them.

The first annual The Edge of Texas Tattoo Expo is happening the weekend of August 13, August 14, and August 15at the Marriot, located at 1600 Airway Boulevard. There will be over 80 tattoo artists on site from all over the country that you can check out and schedule an appointment with. Walk-ups are welcome but many artists get booked before the festival so make sure you follow their Instagram page. You can see what artists will be in attendance, their work,  then contact them to set up an appointment.
