The Atlanta Tattoo Expo has been attracting thousands of attendees each year since 1996 – August 17th-19th, 2018 will be our 22nd year. The Expo was founded by Tony Olivas, one of Georgia’s premier tattoo artists, and owner of Sacred Heart Tattoo in Little 5 Points, Norcross, and Roswell, Georgia. It is already on track to be the biggest show in Sacred Heart Tattoo’s history.

The event will feature live tattooing of different methods and styles, competitions in varying categories, seminars for aspiring and seasoned tattoo artists, bikini contest and much more. The latest tattooing products will also be showcased.

Special Fundraising Event

The Promotors have partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project’s, Warrior Care Network, to host special fundraising events that shall benefit the WWP’s Warrior Care Network.

Warrior Care Network is more than a PTSD program, it is a first-of-its-kind partnership between Wounded Warrior Project and four national academic medical centers of excellence including Emory Healthcare, Massachusetts General Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, and UCLA Health. In cooperation with the Department of Veterans Affairs, this program will connect thousands of warriors with world-class care.

Warrior Care Network is a $100 million commitment to battle the invisible wounds of war by filling gaps in government care and reaching those who might otherwise go untreated. Wounded warriors will be connected with partner hospitals for evaluation and treatment options, enabling life changing PTSD help.

The Promotors – Tony Olivas and Larry Rodriguez look forward to your participation in the world class event.

Your host and emcee for the Expo…  Captain Steele!
