Notes: Since nearly 20 years we run our South-West-Tattoo-Studio in the city of Mainz and after we heard that a local concert organizer (!!!) tried to come up with a Tattoo-Convention, we decided to better organize a renowned Tattoo-Convention ourselves on a level, which is adequate to the Tattoo-Convention Frankfurt which we organize since 19 years with great success. The location 'Congress-Centrum Rheingoldhalle', located near the river Rhine in the heart of the city of Mainz, is perfectly suitable for visitors and exhibitors. Sparing neither trouble nor expense we will make over time the event in Mainz well as established and successful as the Convention in Frankfurt. There is more than only hope that we will be able to welcome for the prelude in Mainz more than 150 tattoo-artists from around the globe, including approx. 30 traders, we have of course communicated with and were met with great acceptance. Two or three months away from the Expo-Start we will publish a complete list of all exhibitors on our website, where you can see for yourselves who is coming. We also are in contact with scene-celebrities and do our best to present a well known star-guest. Like in Frankfurt we will of course present a huge supporting program, including live-bands, shows and as a matter of course the Tattoo-Competition awards. The city of Mainz is not only attractive for tattoo-fans, since the historic city-center with its impressive dome is just a short walk away from the event-location and always worth a trip. For those who are coming with their own cars there is a underground parking lot below the exhibition hall. There are stops for busses and railways at the hall too and even ships are mooring directly at the 'Rheingoldhalle in which you find hotels and casinos. We truly think that the whole location offers everything which is needed for a successful event. Tattoo-Collegues and traders which are considering to participate in the 1st. Tattoo-Expo-Mainz and want to register a booth can have a more detailed look on the location and more informations by visiting www.ccmainz.de. Of course picture galleries will be provided after the event, maybe with your own tattoos! Registration forms will be sent out to all on our mailing list at the end of this year.
