This weekend, downtown Asheville is turning into a tattoo parlor. It’s the 3rd annual Tattoo and Arts Expo at the Renaissance Hotel.
Deirdre Franklin of Pinups for Pitbulls and Promoter J.R. Yarnall shared what you can expect at this year’s expo. They say the expo, formerly known as the Asheville Tattoo Fest, is bigger and better this year. There’s everything from tattooing, to music, art shows, pin ups, and face painting contests. This year the show expands beyond the hotel. The Masonic Temple on Broadway will be the site of the Food Truck Showdown, the pop up art gallery featuring work by fine artists and attending tattoo artists and the live music Saturday night.
