Tattoos have become more and more popular in recent years but you have to be careful who you get to do your tattoo because it'll be with you forever. Sometimes it's hard to find the right artist so that's where events like Ink Life Tattoo and Music Festival come in handy! I got my first tattoo when I was 18 in someone's spare bedroom who learned how to tattoo in jail because I wanted to save a little bit of money... Yeah, I know, what a dumb decision!

Hundreds of the best tattoo artists will return to Longview this August competing for top prizes and doing tattoos on the spot. August 10th-12th Ink Life Tour will be taking over Maude Cobb with tattoos, crazy shows and live music. The bands haven't been announced yet but rumor has it they'll be huge names bringing something for everyone!
