The Devil’s Hollow Tattoo and Art Festival, “The Hollows” is a celebration of the tradition of tattoos, the artists who create them and the people who sport them. Fort Wayne has a vibrant tattoo community and we are excited to bring in the top artists from this region and around the nation for a weekend of tattooing, entertainment and good times.

There will be something for everyone at the show. Whether you are an artist, a seasoned collector or just a fan of great ink, you will be amazed when you walk through the doors.

“The Hollows” will once again be held in downtown Fort Wayne’s beautiful Grand Wayne Convention Center. The center is attached to a spacious Hilton Hotel and we have arranged special rates for all of you who would like to make a weekend of it.


The show will be hosted by Joey Tattoo, a world famous artist and host of SPIKE TV’s Tattoo Rescue. He is well known in the tattoo world and promises to bring his special brand of entertainment to the show.

All of the attending artists will book up quickly, so be sure to make your appointment right away. You will even be able to enter the work you get done at the show in our categorized contests and also give your artist the chance to be named “Artist of the Day.”

Speaking of contests, some of the most coveted awards of the year will be handed out over the course of the weekend.  Just like last year, the judges will be tough but fair. There will be a category for all the work you have, so make sure you enter it all!

In addition to the tattoo contests, well known tattoo model Laura Lynn will be helping us crown “Ms. Vixen.” This pin up contest was one of the highlights of last year’s show and will be open to the tattooed ladies in attendance. First place wins a photo shoot that will be submitted directly to Inked Magazine.
