Queercation Tattoo Conference 

Tattoo conferences have always been a great place to share knowledge, build community, and get inspired! For queer people, however, it can be a challenge to enter spaces or events that are free from harassment, stigma, hostile opinions, or unsolicited questions about ourselves. Therefore, we have created a committee of queer, diverse tattooers, and/or people in the industry, who are creating the first Queer and Ally Tattoo Conference, in order to provide affirming space in which to learn, share, create and foster community. Queercation is a tattooers’ conference which will offer seminars on art and tattooing practices by queer and ally tattooers. Seminars and panels will be provided by talented, professional industry people on topics such as history, health and safety standards, and issues such as colorism in tattooing. Additionally, there will be regional excursions and nightlife entertainment.   


Tattooing and art related education to help further your career, get inspired and have fun!

Discussion panels

Tattoo industry, health, queerness in tattooing, apprenticeships and more...

  • The conference will take place at the Hotel Santa Fe and spa, described as: 

“The only Native American-owned hotel in downtown Santa Fe, Hotel Santa Fe offers you a relaxed yet deeply reverent immersion into the art, architecture, music, and language of the Pueblo people. For more than 25 years, we’ve celebrated and shared the very best of our culture with visitors seeking experiences not found in guidebooks.”


We are excited for our tattoo community to have an experience that includes

ceremonies and education shared by local Pueblo people.
