Thousands Attend Wildwood Tattoo Event | Local News


WILDWOOD — About 8,000 people attended the Wildwood Tattoo Beach Bash at the convention center this weekend, a three-day celebration of ink.

Tattoo artists from across the region set up booths, along with other vendors. The event also included performing artists, tattoo contests and more.

But the tattoo artists seemed to be the main attraction, with more than 150 people in attendance and most of them busy with customers.

Among them was Matt Miranda, from Forked River, who got a Celtic design on his right leg to sit next to an upside-down smiley face and Deathly Hallows symbol from the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. .

He said he and his friends had their own tattoos done when he was in the Navy, a smiley face, but that one faded, replaced by one done by a pro.

Jarehd Herbert, a South Jersey resident who works with Upscale Ink Studio, was setting the scene for the new tattoo.

Several attendees of the event had their children with them, and many said they either made a Wildwood weekend away from the convention or were regular visitors to the seaside town.

The event has been taking place for several years, presented by Rebel Image Tattoo and Villain Arts.
