Atlantic City Tattoo Expo CANCELLED
Not that it hasn't been said before, but 2020 just keeps delivering buzzkill after buzzkill after buzzkill. Yet another South Jersey event has now been officially cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Which one is it this time? That's the question, right? Never asked in a manner of shock, either, it's worth noting. The annual Atlantic City Tattoo Expo has now been called off in an effort to prevent the potential spread of the coronavirus. This event wasn't even scheduled to take place until November, however now it has been postponed until 2021.
That's not the only news the expo team shared today. Apparently, along with the new dates for next year, you can also expect to head somewhere new for the event as well. They announced the new location for the expo next year will be inside the Etess Arena at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. In previous years, the event has been hosted at Bally's.
This will be the first time in 17 years that Atlantic City will not see the tattoo expo come to fruition. Since the annual event expands almost two decades, it's easy to understand why people are sharing their disappointment in the announcement's Facebook comments.
People start dreaming up their next tattoo immediately after the expo for the next year. Many of the attendees only get their ink while at the expo itself, so you can't help but feel for those who were looking forward to this year's expo as a way to express themselves.
Hopefully, with return in 2021 will be even bigger and better than what the team had planned for this year. Check out the expo's cancellation announcement below:
