The Ray Price Capital City Bikefest 6th Annual Tattoo Fest will once again be held in the Raleigh Convention Center in downtown Raleigh, NC. Proceeds from Tattoo Fest go to benefit the USO of NC and the US Veteran's Corps.

Plan for YOUR next tattoo in September, and select from several top-notch local artists.

Individual appointments should be made directly with your tattoo artist or shop, or belly-up at Bikefest and wait for an available time slot. See your favorite artists at work and view their portfolios.

Tickets to the events at the Raleigh Convention Center can be pre-purchased for $10.00 + $2.61 convenience fee and are valid for admission on Saturday and Sunday.
