The Bay Area Tattoo Convention is a small convention focused on building a sense of tattoo community and camaraderie. Tattoo Life has been there from the start and watched and helped Roman and Taki build this event into a weekend overflowing with talented artists and avid collectors, all in one hotel to celebrate the tattoo arts!
