About our event

The All American Tattoo Convention will allow the best tattoo artist in the world to showcase their talents on some of our bravest heroes, all while raising money for PTSD, veterans and families of soldiers.

Tattoos in the US armed forces have a long tradition. To the millions of Americans who have served either as active service personnel or reservists means there are countless inked active duty & war veterans. Many of these tattoos are a constant reminder that they once belonged to a particular military branch or to acknowledge their loyalty not only to their unit but also to their country. These tattoos show their feelings of camaraderie or even to mark the loss of someone close to them.

Tattoos and body art can often be a language of its own when words fail to serve. No one knows this better than troops home from war, often struggling to rejoin everyday life and relate to those who have no concept of what it's like on the front lines.

Tattoos give these veterans an outlet to express themselves and relate their experiences to civilian populations.
