INKED Exclusive: Golden State Tattoo Expo 2018

Check Out Our Favorite Ink From the Pasadena Convention

This past weekend, Pasadena hosted the biggest tattoo convention on the West Coast—known as the Golden State Tattoo Expo. Tattooers from every corner of the globe, from Australia, Europe, and the Americas, gathered under one roof for the annual celebration of ink. We got the chance to check out some of the amazing feats of art first hand and have collected our favorite moments from the three day event. Industry heavy hitters such as Popo and Saga Anderson showed off their skills at the expo, while tattoo crew The Rat Pack teamed up with legendary horror artist Paul Booth to create an unbelievable six person collaborative back piece. Take a look at the gallery below to experience just a handful of the master pieces created this weekend and be sure to let us know in the comments section on Facebook which tattoo blew your mind.
