Nat-A-Tat2 Tattoo Aftercare Heading to Milwaukee
The 9th Annual Milwaukee Tattoo Arts Convention – September 21-23
The Nat-A-Tat2 team is continuing our journey around the country to visit conventions and tattoo expos. Our sponsored artists will be there to share their talent and do some ink, as well as share the benefits of using Nat-A-Tat2 Tattoo Aftercare Products. The team will be at the 9th Annual Milwaukee Tattoo Arts Convention hosted by Villain Arts from September 21-23. It will be held at The Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee.
The Convention will have tons of special guests, including our own Roly T-Rex and other stars from various seasons of Ink Master. Expect a lot of exciting entertainment options, with performances from The Enigma, Marlo Marquise, and more! With hundreds of amazing artists and vendors from all over the country, there will be plenty of opportunities to get new ink done, or get merch. If you want to get tattooed at the convention, check out the Villain Arts website for details, including the list of artists attending the show. There will also be tattoo contests each day of the convention, with Best in Show to be awarded Sunday night. If you get inked there, your design could be entered for a prize (even if you won’t win anything)!
Nat-A-Tat2 will be there as a vendor and sponsor, so make sure to go visit the booth! We will have merchandise to purchase so you can show your love for Nat-A-Tat2, as well as getting a chance to stock up on our tattoo aftercare products. (If you can’t see us in person, don’t worry, you can still get the merch here.)

Planning to Go? Here’s Some Ideas
A group rate for convention-goers is available at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Milwaukee Downtown. But don’t worry if they are fully booked or out of your price range. There are plenty of other nearby hotels, including the Astor Hotel, Knickerbocker on the Lake, The Plaza Hotel, or the Hilton at Milwaukee City Center. With other assorted motels and affordable hotel chains throughout the area, there is an accommodation for every price range.
Downtown Milwaukee has many options, even just within walking distance from the Wisconsin Center. These include a fancy steakhouse option at Milwaukee ChopHouse, and a 24/7 diner (George Webb Restaurant)! There really is a dining experience for everyone. Some other options are Build-A-Breakfast/Build-A-Burger, The King & I Thai Restaurant, and an Italian place called the Calderone Club, all within a couple blocks!
There are plenty of venues to have some fun at in the evenings. Some nightclubs you should check are the Lucid Light Lounge, Bad Genie, and Apartment 720. For a more loungey, relaxed feel, try 42 Lounge, Plum Lounge, the Outsider, and Stir.
Craving a more unique experience? 1983 Arcade Bar has arcade classics and other games to keep you entertained. High Note is the ideal place to get your karaoke on, and Bugsy’s Back Alley Speakeasy takes you back to the era of Prohibition in the Roaring Twenties.
Things to Do
Looking to take a break from the expo, or want to stay an extra day or two? There is plenty to do in just this small section of downtown Milwaukee. Take a tour of the Pabst MKE Brewery, or The Brew City MKE Beer Museum & Beer Bar. The Brew City museum is the best place to learn about Milwaukee’s beer scene, both past and present.
Take some time to relax on the water on a riverboat or kayak tour. Always wanted to see an empty stadium? The Miller High Life Theatre and UWM Panther Arena will be offering free tours on Saturday, September 22nd. For those who always want to be learning, visit the Milwaukee Public Museum (which is Wisconsin’s Natural History Museum). You can see everything from Wooly Mammoth skeletons to an exhibit about King Tut, and even interact with live butterflies. There is something for every age and personality to check out!
Come check out the Milwaukee Tattoo Arts Convention in September, and make sure to come see the Nat-A-Tat2 team! With plenty of things to do in Downtown Milwaukee, you just might want to schedule a little extra time to spend there.Back..
