A tattoo convention is a meeting and exhibition for tattoo practitioners and enthusiasts,as well as anyone who wishes to see the world of tattooing up close.Tattoo conventions range from small events sponsored by a local business that may last a day, to major international conventions spanning a weekend or the better part of a week.They may include contests and exhibitions, booths selling tattoo-related items and even booths rented for use by tattoo artists who work during the convention. Collectors may attend conventions specifically to obtain a tattoo from a particular visiting artist. Other events may include professional events such as workshops and meetings as well as social events.Contests, usually restricted to registered participants, usually feature a variety of categories: portraits, new school, traditional, black-and-gray, tribal, oriental, backpieces, sleeves and so on. Judging may be by vote or by a panel of judges.
