Boise body art to blossom at 208 Tattoo Festival

Time to think ink. There will be lots of talented artists from Idaho and other states gathered at 208 Tattoo Festival. That said, you don’t have to get tattooed to enjoy yourself. There will be lots to see and do, including a Miss 208 and Mr. 208 Contest. (The first 1,000 people June 12 get a free signed calendar featuring the finalists.) Although plans are for everything “to be tasteful,” parental discretion is recommended at the festival June 12 and 13; family-friendly activities happen June 14.

2 to 9:30 p.m June 12, 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. June 13 and 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. June 14, Expo Idaho, 5610 N. Glenwood St., Garden City. $35. 208tattoofest.com.
