FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
First ever tattoo exhibition to feature at 2014 BIG Industry Show and US Cannabis Cup Denver, Colorado February 13, 2014 Summary: As expenditure on tattoos in the US is confirmed as reaching $1.65 billion, the innovative BIG Industry Show and High Times US Cannabis Cup partnership announce their first ever tattoo exhibition as part of the 2014 event. According to new data from the Pew Research Center, Americans spend $1.65 billion on tattoos every year. The research coincides with the news that the combined BIG Industry Show and High Times US Cannabis Cup 2014 event in Denver, Colorado this April will feature a tattoo exhibition as part of its celebration of all aspects of the 420 lifestyle. The event runs from April 16 thru 20, beginning with the two day BIG Industry Show – the 420 lifestyle’s leading business to business event.
The Galleria glass exhibition will follow on April 18, celebrating the work of glass blowing artists at the forefront of the industry and open to the public for the first time. The event will conclude with the two day US Cannabis Cup on April 19 and 20. The latest announcement from the event’s organizers confirms rumors that tattooing will be available at the BIG Industry Show and US Cannabis Cup for the first time. Based on the Pew Research Center’s finding that 45 million Americans have at least one tattoo, the new exhibition and tattooing service will be a major draw for attendees. In recognition of the fact that 49% of people see the reputation of the tattoo artist or studio as the most important factor when considering getting a tattoo, the show will include only the best of the industry’s artists. These will form the ‘Hustle Row’ of celebrated tattooists, including BJ Betts, John Anderton, Forrest, Johnny Smith, Craig Foster, Daniel Walker, El Whyner, Cesar Morales, Karl Berringer, Garrett Harper, Aimeè Cornwell and Old Larimer St Tattoo.
As the world’s premier event for the 420 lifestyle, this year’s show has moved to the Denver Mart exhibition center, in recognition of the massive increase in delegates that the 2014 event has attracted. More than 30,000 people are expected to join the event, which celebrates all aspects of the lifestyle and related pursuits. This includes a hugely diverse mix of exhibitors, with products ranging from seeds to apparel to smoking products. For those looking to get tattooed at the event, the sector’s premier artists will be available, exhibiting their designs and providing consultations and tattooing services to attendees. The initiative is representative of the cutting edge approach that the BIG Industry Show, Galleria and the US Cannabis Cup have taken in previous years. Each year’s event has built on the success of the previous year, while surpassing it in terms of innovation and the range of products, activities and exhibitors available. Only a few tickets remain available for the 2014 event, so those wishing to attend are encouraged to book their places as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
