22nd Annual Coney Island Tattoo & Motorcycle Festival
Coney Island has a long history as of one of the greatest tattoo centers in New York City and the world. Coney Island USA's Tattoo and Motorcycle Festival celebrates the great blue collar arts of tattooing and of motorcycle customization. Started in the bad old days in 1986 when tattooing was still illegal in NYC, the Coney Island Tattoo and Motorcycle Festival is both the oldest gathering in New York City and brings together cutting edge New York City artistic innovation and attitude in the traditional home of the tattoo.
Every year, entrants compete for trophies as they show their tats in the Sideshow by the Seashore Theater or parade their motorcycles on West 12th Street before our panel of judges. Tattoos are judged in the categories of Black and White, Color, Tribal, Back and Butt, while Motorcycles compete in the categories of Custom, Stock, Oldest and Ugliest.
