Join us as we come together to celebrate creativity, talent, and community spirit at Ink the Bay 4, igniting a unifying celebration of arts and culture throughout Tampa Bay.

Located in the vibrant Downtown District of St. Petersburg, FL, we are bridging Tampa Bay! Coastal Creative is set to host Ink the Bay from May 9th to 12th. This family-friendly four-day tattoo expo promises a diverse showcase of arts, fashion, media, and welding. By intertwining these unique creative elements, our aim is to nurture lasting connections within the Tampa Bay community while showcasing its abundant artistic prowess.

At Coastal Creative, attendees will immerse themselves in an unforgettable experience, with three LED screens, one towering at an impressive 18 feet high and 45 feet wide. These screens will serve as the canvas for the tattoo competition and weekend-long entertainment, ensuring every moment is captured in vibrant detail from every angle.

Ink the Bay features over 150 tattoo artists, offering four days of competitions and walk-up tattoo sessions for the entire community. Whether you prefer flash or realism, you’ll discover your perfect ink. With food trucks on-site and a dedicated kid zone, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
