Literary Ink: The World’s Only Tattoo Convention For Potterheads – Littered With Garbage

In February 2019, Chattanooga, Tennessee will once again play host to Literary Ink: the world’s only tattoo convention for Potterheads. Yes, you read that right – a tattoo expo just for fans of Harry Potter does indeed exist!

Literary Ink: The Convention of Secrets is the full title of this (now) annual tattoo convention.

After the success of the inaugural event earlier in 2018, artists and vendors will be together in what has been dubbed the Chamber of Tattoos at a larger venue – the Chattanooga Convention Center.

A red carpet event is to be held the night prior where the film documenting last year’s event will be screened.

If you’re a Potterhead and enjoyed April’s theme of Harry Potter tattoos, then this is one event you don’t want to miss!

2019’s Convention of Secrets poster was designed by tattoo artist, Jonathan Penchoff (@earthgrasper), who will be tattooing at the convention along with many other returning artists.

In attendance will be tattooers from across the US, and some flying in from the UK and Australia. If these artists are willing to travel thousands of miles to tattoo at this event, it’s a good indication of how much fun there is to be had.

Five LWG faves include: Ebony Mellowship, Jonathan Penchoff, Mae La Roux, Isobel Morton, and Eddy Lou.











The full website is now live, where you can check out a huge gallery of photographs from the 2018 event. It’s also where you will find details about all the fun events and competitions that will be taking place across the weekend. And, most importantly, you can peruse the HUGE list of tattoo artists attending Literary Ink.
