This is no yawner of a convention. Tattoo artists from New York to Boise will be showing off their skills this weekend, celebrating the art of the tat.  And they'll have skating demonstrations and mural paintings, plus activities for the kids.  Make sure you tell them these are not the usual temporary tats.

Organizers of the Treasure Valley Tattoo Convention say they'll have the best tattoo artists in the world in town this weekend, from as far away as Japan and Russia.

Some of the Boise tattoo artists that will be there this weekend include Devotion Tattoo, A Mind's Eye Tattoo, Aloha Tattoo, Chalice Tattoo, Inkvision Tattoo, Iron Wolf Tattoo, Papa Joe’s Tattoo, Pyramid Tattoo, Snake River Tattoo,  and Tattoos by Teach.  From Nampa, American Classic Tattoo and The Hook-Up will be there.  Along with Lifestyle Tattoo from Meridian.

Skate demos from Prestige Skateshop and Element are on tap too, plus mural painting, tattoo contests, a kids' coloring contest, and motorcycle displays.  I think we can safely say we've never had all of that in one spot before.

The Treasure Valley Tattoo Convention runs May 19th through 21st at Century Link Arena.


Fri., May 19, 2-11 p.m.

Sat., May 20, 12-10 p.m.

Sun., May 21, 12-8 p.m.
