Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), Evan Seinfeld (BIOHAZARD), Sully Erna (GODSMACK), Billy Duffy (THE CULT) and Jerry Cantrell (ALICE IN CHAINS) are among the musicians who are scheduled to appear at Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth, a convention that will bring a potent mixture of rock, art, entertainment and more to Las Vegas. In true Vegas fashion, this event is easily touted as the world's largest skin and body modification convention and takes place October 2-4 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
Superstar Tommy Lee and DJ Aero, DJ Steve Aoki, DJ Scotty Boy and DJ Skribble kick off festivities at the opening VIP party Thursday, October 1, at 9:30 p.m. at Rumjungle inside the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
On Friday, October 2, invited guests will enjoy Mario Barth's Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth After-Party hosted by "Slash & Friends", featuring the DARLING STILETTOS at Jet nightclub inside The Mirage.
The convention is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be tattooed by the world's top artists from around the globe. Industry icons from Japan and Samoa that are otherwise unavailable have been flown in to Las Vegas to work on convention goers. There will also be live performances and musical acts at the expo.
"Tattoos are more than just a way to express yourself," says Seinfeld in a statement. "They are an art form and a way of life. For people dedicated to this lifestyle they represent something much larger than themselves. Tattoos are something very personal to me. It's a lifestyle that I appreciate and we try to reflect that in our Teravision [the company owned by Seinfeld and his wife, porn star Tera Patrick] products."
In collaboration with MGM Mirage, Mario Barth's Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth brings patrons an opportunity to experience the AC/DC "Black Ice" world tour on Saturday, October 3, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
In addition to the AC/DC concert on October 3, DJ Mix Master Mike will be entertaining Barth's guests at Rok nightclub inside New York New York Hotel and Casino. The convention closing party will take place at The Bank Nightclub inside Bellagio on Sunday, October 4, featuring Dave Navarro, DJ Skribble and DJ Slynkee.
