Due to the nature of the size of the venue, we are pre-selling event tickets far in advance to tattoo artists, apprentices, apprentice wananbees, and tattoo collectors. We suggest getting tickets and reserving your hotel rooms asap! The Gathering resort has sold out every year in the past, and we hope to do the same at Keystone.

This will be our second year hosting the Paradise Tattoo Gathering,and we plan on kicking it up a notch! The Paradise Tattoo Gathering, its artists, and sponsors will be promoted heavily to TattooNOW’s audience of over 600,000 unique tattoo enthusiasts each month. With the world class talent attending the convention, the momentum building behind the event is humbling. Our street team is over 200 artists strong, and the quality and number of people helping promote the show is inspiring. We are working very hard to insure the tattoo community, indeed the public, knows some of the best tattoo talent in the world will be in New England the last weekend in September. Our current sponsors are promoting the event to their network of artists, indeed 5,000 postcards have already been distributed worldwide in less than a month! The Paradise Tattoo Gathering is represented by sponsors and artists at nearly all major tattoo conventions throughout the year. We invite you to help join forces and to help the gathering’s artists and sponsors reach to even more people in a wide variety of ways.

We currently have a half page ad running in Tattoo Society, a half page ad in Prick, a full page in Tattoo Artist Magazine, and a banner ad campaign on Prickmag.net. Other magazine ads are scheduled to hit the streets. Your support will help secure print ads for the gathering, and reinforce your existing ads in these magazines!Vinyl Banner Placement
Place your vinyl banner in select places throughout the Paradise Tattoo Gathering. Possible banner placement for your company include the music after-hours parties, placement in the tattoo rooms, in the Burbank room where all the discussion panels and contests are held, and in the artist lounge. You provide the reasonably sized banner, and we help get it in front of a lot of the right people! Prime banner locations go to select sponsorship packages. Each event and discussion panels will have a primary sponsor.Goodie Bags
Each artist who attends the Paradise Tattoo Gathering will receive a goodie bag filled up with high quality samples, catalogs, cards, stickers, and more. If you are looking to get your sample materials directly into the hands of tattoo artists who are interested in trying new things and bettering themselves, this is a great opportunity. We expect to give away 60 goodie bags to the world class artists working the show, as well as 500-750 to artists who buy artist weekend passes.
