This past weekend we returned to the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Festival for our fifth year in Philadelphia, PA. So good to reconnect with old friends and make new ones, both tattoo artists and clients. Building solid relationships is what our business is all about.

This year was amazingly warm but didn’t stop the flow of people coming in, we were just happy not to have to deal with snow, ice and freezing rain as past years. Thank you all who came through!  Another huge accomplishment for Troy Timpel and the whole Villian Arts crew, with another record number of booths and another record turnout.

Wrap Up: 2019 Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Festival | Philadelphia, PA

Our flags flying high and bright orange colors it was hard to miss our booth. We stayed busy talking about fading for cover-up tattoos, tattoo removal and reconnecting with everyone.  This is one of our favorite conventions of the year for this very reason.

Random Winner

Pulled at random of the 114 who entered to at the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention to win a free laser tattoo removal is the 49th person, Arianna DiBlase. We’ll be emailing you shortly Arianna, thanks to everyone who entered.

This weekend was amazing! We spent the entire time talking about how laser tattoo removal can help benefit cover-up tattoos and even a few who were seeking full removal. Continuing to spread the knowledge of how this process works, setting realistic expectations and building relationships is at the core of what we’re all about.

We also got to see plenty of old friends, exchanged lots of high fives and met so many new friends! Overall, an amazing experience.
