Inspiring Tattooers, Collectors, & the Curious since 2008

The Paradise Tattoo Gathering (PTG) is not your average tattoo event. It's nestled in the least densely populated town in Western Massachusetts, but attracts some of the worlds top tattooers and those seeking inspiration & insights. You're surrounded by nature & free from the constant distractions. It's the perfect environment to focus.
But it's not just the location that makes PTG stand out. The artist list is filled with some of the world's most open, caring tattooers, excited to share their skills with all who attend. These are the kind of artists who aren't just in it for the money or to tattoo all weekend. They're here to learn from other artists, to expand their minds with experiences, and to fill up their souls with connections that will last for years, maybe even decades, to come.

What happens at the Paradise Tattoo Gathering?


At The Paradise Tattoo Gathering, we're all about creating events that inspire tattooers and artists of all mediums, both online and in real life. It's one of our most favorite things!

That's why our artist list is always filled with inspirational talent from a variety of backgrounds and styles.


At The Paradise Tattoo Gathering, we're all about helping tattooers, apprentices, and tattoo vets take their skills to the next level. That's why our events are designed to be immersive professional development experiences that include a wide range of activities.

From seminars and discussion panels to critiques and workshops, our events are tailored to meet the needs of tattooers at all levels. We believe that by bringing together talent from around the world, we can create a collaborative learning environment that is truly life-changing.

Our events have been described as transformative by many tattooers, who have come away from them feeling inspired, motivated, and empowered. We hope you'll join us for one of our upcoming events and experience the magic for yourself.


Let me tell you something about the power of networking. It can change lives. Bringing like-minded people together is a powerful force that can inspire, create working relationships, and forge lifelong friendships. For over a decade, the PTG event has been doing just that.

The PTG brings together diverse artists who share a common goal - to better themselves, to better the tattoo community, and to make a positive impact on the world. Tattooing is a form of art that has a significant impact on cultures, and it is our responsibility to become positive stewards of this art for the time we are here.

By working with like-minded individuals, we can create a culture of respect, inclusivity, and creativity. The PTG is a place where artists can meet, network, and collaborate to shape the future of the tattoo industry and its impact on society.
