Due to circumstances beyond our control, Villain Arts Tattoo Conventions announces the official postponement of our 1st Annual Houston Tattoo Arts Convention, which was scheduled the weekend of September 22nd-24th, 2017 at NRG Center, in Houston, TX.

The unforeseen impact of the recent hurricane requires that our host venue, the NRG Center, must reschedule all scheduled upcoming events, including the Houston Tattoo Arts Convention.

We will hold the inaugural event at a later date TBA in 2018. All vendor and artist deposits and payments will be honored for the postponed show date, or they may be used towards a booth rental in any other city on the Villain Arts roster for the remainder of 2017 and 2018.

Our hearts go out to the people of Houston during this tragedy. We can assure the talented tattoo artists and the tattooed community in Texas that we will be joining you all very soon for an inaugural Houston Tattoo Arts Convention, and until then we will send all of our strength, and hope for a swift recovery. We will be posting the rescheduled date as soon as the NRG Center assigns a new date for us. Please check back to Villainarts.com, and our social media for the rescheduled announcement. Thanks.
