Pittsburgh Tattoo Festival: June 21 – June 23, 2024

Monica ( Lambentdawn ) will be attending the Pittsburgh Tattoo Festival from Friday, June 21st to Sunday June 23rd, 2024.  It can be a lot of fun to get tattooed at a convention.  If you are interested in being a canvas for one of the competition entries please reach out to us by e-mail, or DM your artist directly on instagram.

Please reach out to book your tattoo for the Pittsburgh Tattoo Festival, a tattoo convention happening right in the heart of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at the Pittsburgh Convention Center, downtown. It’s right by the fork in the rivers, across from the Steelers and Penguins Stadiums. 

While I’m there, I am excited to do more traditional and new school pieces.  I will be bringing flash, but please reach out to me if you have any ideas for designs you’d like prepared for the convention.  I prefer to hand paint tattoo designs before doing them, so please reach out to me at least two weeks before the convention so I have time to play with the design.

Conventions are a way for artists to flex their skills, and I will be focusing on specific types of tattoos at the convention.  Please be willing to stay the entire day and enter into the tattoo competition at the end of the day.

 If you would like to be tattooed at a convention, please keep these notes in mind:

  • There is an entry fee, tattoos are not included
  • Bring a snack and water, or plan your budget for snacks
  • Have a goods night rest, and have a full meal before coming.
  • We will have flash catered to the competitions we wish to enter
  • If you would like to schedule with a specific competition in mind, please e-mail the shop to get a consult started.

Lambentdawn will be focusing on the following competitions:

Fresh Small Color ( All Days )

Fresh Small Black and Grey ( Do opaques count as black and grey?  I guess we’ll find out. )

I will have a variety of flash prepared to pick from that can be finished in any color combo.  All I need is the main color you want, and we’ll build the pallet from there.  The color pallet does not have to adhere to the finished flash sheet examples at all!  I don’t want it to clash with your existing tattoos!
