The event offers tattooing and body piercing to the public and an opportunity to be tattooed by celebrity tattoo artists. There is live entertainment, a sideshow act Captain and Maybelle, Miss Pittsburgh Pin Up Contest, bull-riding competition, Battle of the 'Burgh tattoo competition and a performance by Little Ozzy: Pint-Sized Prince of Darkness.
"We wanted to have more Pittsburgh-based small businesses involved this year, so I sat aside an area specifically for them to have an opportunity to network with our attendees and get more exposure," says Piper, a Pittsburgh native and veteran tattoo artist in a news release.
