Tattoo the earth festival
CanMan from Visions Tattoo will be slinging ink at the Tattoo the earth festival.
Rock and metal fans have learned that the storied Tattoo the earth tour is back!
The heavy music and tattoo event is returning as a single-day festival after two decades dormant.
Show is at the Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts, on Aug. 27.
In addition, the fest added even more bands to the stacked lineup.
The second wave of performers includes Bleeding through, Crowbar and Overcast.
Also, Spirit Adrift, Terror, The Red Chord and Within the Ruins.
Hatebreed, At the Gates, Municipal Waste and Enforced are bands that were already announced.
Original promoter Scott Alderman published the book ‘Caravan of Pain: The True Story of the Tattoo the Earth Tour.
The heavy-music-meets-body-art event originally ran for three years.
From 2000–2002, with the 2000 traveling fest being mostly remembered as the main draw.
That year featured many top names in rock and metal, including Slipknot and several others.
This year’s Tattoo the Earth will feature a tattoo village hosted by Zaza Ink.
A festival village will include body piercing, body painting, art events, contests and more.
Food trucks and a “Bacon & Bourbon” tent will also be on site.
“When I wrote Caravan of Pain, I never imagined it would bring the show back to life,” Alderman marveled!
