INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival’s incredibly unique festival setting – the historic Ohio State Reformatory – is considered one of the most haunted buildings in the country and the setting of the 1994 cinematic classic/IMDB’s highest rated movie of all time, The Shawshank Redemption (celebrating its 25th anniversary his year). The Ohio State Reformatory is centrally located about an hour away from Cleveland, Columbus, and Canton/Akron, Ohio and within a three-hour driving distance of Toledo, Dayton, Cincinnati, Youngstown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, Michigan and southern Ontario. Additionally, INKCARCERATION features tent and RV camping for a true outdoor festival experience!
Stay tuned for more details coming soon regarding gourmet food trucks and more.
With the concert happening outside, INKCARCERATION will feature 70 local and regional tattoo artists tattooing all weekend inside the reformatory. Appointments are recommended if there is a specific artist you would like to work with. Visit www.inkcarceration.com/tattoo for information on how to book your appointment and to see a full list of featured tattoo shops, companies and artists. Tattoo competition details and judges will be announced soon.
Escape from Blood Prison is the annual Halloween haunted house attraction hosted at the historic Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, OH. It typically runs from the end of September through early November every year, but INKCARCERATION will make this spooky attraction available for festival goers to experience all weekend long in 2019! Once Blood Prison takes over the reformatory, the enormous facility is filled with bloodthirsty inmates waiting for victims to enter and try and make it through the facility alive!

He is sight to behold and an smorgasbord to the ears!
In honor of Record Store Day , this past weekend I wanted to do a spot light on a lesser known artist but one that will be lesser known for only a little while longer . I brought out my vinyl I bought at a show ” Take My Hand ” and allow me to introduce to Jared James Nichols .
I was first was introduced to to JJN at a Zakk Wylde show when he was direct tour support . I showed up thinking oh great I have to sit thru another opener. Well to be surprised is an understatement .This guy is awesome, his modern take on the blues and rock is unparalleled in today music landscape.I immediate went to his merch table after his set and bought a record I had to hear more .
Fast forward a couple of years later and I was delighted to see he was announced for the opening slot of the latest John 5 and The Creatures Tour . Like before this artist just belew me away and the fact that he does not use a guitar pick is just amazing .He uses his thumb like Steve Harris of Iron Maiden uses his fingers . It is a sight to behold and an smorgasbord to the ears.
A lot of people complain that there is not new music or good music coming out , well open your ears citizens there is a new sheriff in town !! and his name is Jared James Nichols .
