This summer, Vehicle City will transform into 'Tattoo City' with the area's first major tattoo convention.

For the longest time residents and ink addicts from Flint and surrounding areas have wanted a tattoo convention right here in our own hometown. I'm happy to say it's finally going to happen.

The Tattoo City Tattoo Convention is rolling through the Dort Financial Event Center for three days in August. It will be three days of tattooing, entertainment, clothing, artwork, and contests.

Come see Flint’s own Kyle Dunbar who was featured on season 3 and season 4 of Ink Master, Cee Jay Jones from season 2, Carl Murray AKA Doctor Blasphemy, and other top-rated artists from across the state and country.

You can also expect live entertainment from Captain and Maybelle who were featured on America's Got Talent and Wife Swap. There will be a beard and mustache competition and a pinup contest. Plus, you can get tattooed and pierced on the spot by your favorite artists (must be 18 and over). Of course, Banana 101.5 will be there broadcasting live as well.
