Ink-N-Iron 2013 Kustom Culture Festival

With Out of Step Books

{E-VOLVED} Magazine has teamed up with the crew behind The Octopus Art Project and Memento Publishing at this years Ink n’ Iron Tattoo Festival! We’ll be shacking up all weekend long in the “Eight Arms of Inspiration” Book and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ll have copies of past issues as well as stickers, buttons, and TSHIRTS! Come on out to the Queen Mary and support the arts!

People come to ink-n-iron for the love of Hot Rods-Kustoms, Live music, burlesque, art shows, 50’s fashion, and of course the tattoo show covering three floors inside the ship. 280 of the best tattoo artists in the world will be on hand from 30 States and 25 Countries representing all the tattoo styles; where a car show and music become an integral part of the event, mingling with the artistic expressions of the artists at work. Pinups clad in corsets, Classic Cats with Pompadours, Mohawks, fashion Mullets, full sleeves and back pieces. Not only is the breathtaking view of the gigantic Queen Mary, the beautiful water, and the amazing Long Beach skyline quite a task to take in all at once, but all the fashion statements and lavishly adorned people are quite a spectacle as well. This convention will be both a sort of art gallery and community festival. Seven years ago the ship was overtaken by the underground subculture of all things Kustom and modified. From tattooing to pin striping and tantalizing show goers with tight corsets the 10th Annual Ink N Iron Festival is laced up and racing for port! Find out more about the Ink-n-Iron Story
