Ink For a Cause Tattoo Convention
September 14-16, 2012

Last September 14th-16th the 4th Annual INK FOR A CAUSE took place in beautiful Ventura, CA. Just steps from the beach, collectors gathered for a worthy cause: Ventura County non-profit School on Wheels. School on Wheels, a 501(c)(3) organization, provides tutoring to homeless children, backpacks, and school supplies. The mission of School on Wheels is to enhance educational opportunities for homeless children from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

The three-day tattoo convention advocating generosity through body art raised well over $5,000 for the organization. The 2012 event was hosted by the lovely Christine Fury and included over 100 world renowned artists including special guest artist Lyle Tuttle, Alex Garcia, Rich Pineda, Brittan London Reese, Freddy Negrete, Charles O’ Hare, Mike Metzger, Manuel Valenzuela and many, many more. Guests were also treated to a fine art gallery, kids arts & crafts corner using 100% recyclable goods, live bands courtesy of Sullen Musik including 100 Proof, Kingthick, Thorne, Lords of Ruin, and All Else Fails!

The 5th Annual Ink For a Cause takes place September 13th-15th, 2013 in Ventura!
