From our humble beginnings in 1996, the Motor City Tattoo Expo has grown into a major annual gathering for the tattoo community. This year we are celebrating our 27th Anniversary. Each year the show continues to grow bigger and better and this year is no exception.

For 2022, we have gathered an amazing list of talented artists from all around the world. Visit the vendors throughout the expo and find something unique to take home. Sign up for a seminar, enter a contest or two, and look for the events and entertainment scheduled all weekend long. A listing of the artists, vendors, and events will be regularly updated on this site. Take a quick click through and you will see once again, The Motor City Tattoo Expo has brought you the best of the best all under one roof.

We would like to give a special thank you to all of our contributing sponsors and we thank the people of Detroit. This city has been the expo’s home for the last two decades and we look forward to many more years together.
