The Atlanta Tattoo Festival is this Weekend

Hit the 15th annual event started by Tony Olivas of Sacred Heart Tattoo

Fifteen years ago, Tony Olivas, founder of (of which the original is in Little Five Points) created the Atlanta Tattoo Festival and since then, it's evolved into a weekend that draws thousands of visitors from all over the world.

This Friday through Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Atlanta-Perimeter Northwest, ink lovers can experience live tattooing from world-class artists, seminars, live music from Southern rock to hip-hop, book signings (Dennis Dwyer and Crazy Philadelphis Eddie), unique vendors, contests, food, drinks, and much more.

And for the first time ever, there will be live tattoo demonstrations of the stunning traditional Marquesian and Polynesian methods by Pili Mo'o, a "traditional tatau master" who's traveling all the way from the Canary Islands for the occasion.

With all that's going on, what is Olivas looking forward to the most? 

"Just everybody having a good time!" he said.

That sounds about right.

Fri. June 3 & Sat., June 4 from 3pm to 12am, Sun., June 5 from 12pm to 7pm.
