For the first time in the event’s history, the Motor City Tattoo Expo is back for a second installment in the same year. Billed as the first-ever Summer Motor City Tattoo Expo, this event will feature over 300 local and international tattoo artists, all of whom will be inking the public at the show. The expo, which will also feature some music and entertainment, is the perfect place to meet the artist who can create the piece of your dreams. Pro tip: If an artist you’d like is booked for the show, make an appointment in advance — their dance cards fill up fast.

The show Friday, Aug. 18 from noon to 11 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 19 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 20 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Renaissance Center is located at 100 Renaissance Center, Detroit. Weekend passes are $40, but children 14 and younger are free. For more info go to
