2011 INK N IRON photo

The 8th Annual Ink-N-Iron festival was nothing short of spectacular. People from all over the globe congregated and celebrated their love of custom hot rods and tattoo culture; once you stepped foot onto the playground, you were instantly taken back in time to when gorgeous pinup models, cool cats rockin’ Pompadours, and the sickest hot rods on earth reigned supreme. The Queen Mary played host to 280 of the world’s best and iconic tattoo artists from 30 states and 25 countries spread over three machine-buzzing levels inside the legendary ship. In short, Ink-N-Iron is the show to attend if you want to see amazing artists and killer hot rods. The entire event itself was a task to take in all at once yet absolutely breathtaking. We can’t wait for next year!
