Here is all the info you need to know to secure a tattoo booth & submit required paperwork and legal forms for the state of Mississippi.
When you send an email/application for a booth at Due South Tattoo & Art Expo 2019, it MUST include ALL INFORMATION: artist names, studio name, contact information and TattooCloud portfolio links for each artist. Any incomplete booth application emails will NOT be reviewed nor will they receive a response.

HOW TO SEND US YOUR PORTFOLIO/SAMPLES OF WORK
We use TattooCloud to power this website and showcase you on the Attending Artist page when you become a tattooer at the Expo. This includes your Name, Location, Studio, Links to your website, social networks along with your showcase tattoo images. This is to help you get booked while at our show – and it saves all of us time & effort. It’s quick and easy, so please have your artists fill in their info by creating an account if they aren’t on TattooCloud yet. You will enter the TattooCloud portfolio link for each artist when you submit this application and get your booth the most efficient way for us all. Thanks! If you are un-able to be on TattooCloud for whatever reason, you can upload the artists info here.

It’s easy and only takes a few minutes.
