St. Louis is a VERY cool place!! Come early and stay late.

Known as the gateway to the west, the city of Saint Louis is an amazing town. There's plenty to do and see, and the Tattoo Expo is right in the middle of the action. With plenty of restaurants and night clubs in the neighborhood, you'll have no problem finding a place to eat, relax and show off your new tattoo or dance the night away. There's a NEW casino near by too.

Whats going on in St. Louis.
Special places to go.

St. Louis may be best known for Lewis and Clark, Mark Twain, Route 66 and home of Budweiser but there is also a rich history of tattooing in the Mound City. Union Station and Forest Park, home of the 1904 World's Fair, are just two historic areas.
