A tattoo is a form of body art created by inserting a pigment into the skin with a needle to form a design. Humans have been altering their bodies in this fashion since at least 3200BCE. In addition to being an artistic endeavor, tattoos have also been used to mark individuals as members of a specific group for followers of a certain belief system. The term “tattoo” originated in the 18th century from the Samoan word for “to strike”.

At the festival, attendees will have the opportunity to get tattooed from traveling and local artists alike.  There will also be contests and other activities.
