LOAD IN: There is a hotel entrance, a convention entrance, and a loading dock. The easiest location will be the loading dock. Look for the doors that say CONVENTION CENTER, and continue around the back of the building. We will check you in, once inside!

What is a tattoo convention? What goes on at one?
At Harvest Moon Tattoo Expo, you can expect to see artists from all over the world tattooing throughout the day. We have contests, lots of amazing vendors, face painters, etc! Check out the entertainment & schedule tab to see a list of what we have going on!

Are kids allowed?
Yes they are, we love kids! Kids 12 & Under are free to get in, with the purchase of an adult ticket! We will have an area kids with activities throughout the weekend. We will also have a face painter, henna artist, and temporary tattoos! 

How do I get tattooed at the show?
This is a great opportunity to get tattooed by artists from all over the world! Most artists will have the option to book in advance, and spots fill up quick! Check out our attending artists page, from there you can view their social media, portfolios, and contact information to schedule appointments at the Expo! Some artists will have the option of walk up appointments, which will be first come, first serve!

Are tattoos free?
Nope! The cost of the tattoo is set by the individual attending artists, and will be discussed with you prior to your appointment. Please contact the artist!

How old do you have to be to get tattooed?
Texas law states that you must be 18 to be tattooed, and each artist will be checking drivers for VALID licenses and will have you fill out a release form. Don’t forget your IDs! 

What happens if I don’t have a valid license?
You will not be able to get tattooed at our show. 

What happens if I lose my wristband?
You will have to purchase a new one at ticketing! Entry is non-refundable and non-transferable.  Never remove your wristband by yourself unless you plan on leaving. See Registration to remove your wristband if absolutely necessary (like if you’re getting tattooed on that wrist.)

Does the price at the door go to part of my tattoo?
No, the entrance fee does not cover any tattoo fees.

How do I get tickets?
Tickets can be purchased at the door, or here!

Are pets allowed?
Only licensed Service Animals will be allowed inside the convention hall, accompanied by their owners, on a leash. However, they will not be allowed inside the tattoo booths. 

What is the advantage to buying my ticket online?
If you pre-purchase, you don’t have to wait in line while others buy theirs! We will have a separate will-call area! We do not ship or email pre-sale tickets! You will receive your wristband from the will-call.
