The Worldwide Tattoo Tour is seeking great indie bands to perform live at the fifteenth annual Inkslingers Ball Worldwide Tattoo Tour, happening for the first time at Angel Stadium in Anaheim on April 21-23, 2006. We are seeking bands from the Orange County and surrounding areas with an established fan base to showcase live, performing music that appeals to the alternative lifestyle of tattoo, piercing, and fashion enthusiasts, and is similar in style to the music heard on radio station Indie 103.1 FM. In addition to seeking bands to perform live at the event, we are also seeking music for inclusion on the first annual Inkslinger's Ball Compilation CD.

Virtually a “Who's Who” in the tattoo and entertainment industries, the Inkslingers Ball Worldwide Tattoo Tour is the place to be this April. The convention attracts many celebrities - past attendees of the Inkslingers Ball include rock 'n' rollers Billy Idol, Brian Setzer, Slim Jim Phantom, Brian O'Neal, Ron Young, Glen Danzig, Ziggy Marley, David Lee Roth, House of Pain, The Mavericks, Motley Crue, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Social Distortion, The Cult, Guns N' Roses and Alice In Chains. Actors attending include: Cher, Drew Barrymore, Johnny Depp, Roseanne, William Forsythe, and Tom Arnold, just to name a few!

This exciting tattoo conference will take over two entire floors of Anaheim Stadium, and showcase over 100 well-known tattoo artists. Additional booth space will go to vendors serving the counter culture. Current sponsors include Virgin, Sam Ash, Indie 103.1, Suicide Girls, Rockstar, Black Fly, and Silver Star, with many more on the way. There will be an indoor and an outdoor stage, as well as acoustic street corner performance areas for solo and duo acts.

Selected acts will receive 12 free tickets, plus 100 tickets to sell for $20, with a return of $12. Solo acts will get 4 comps and 50 tickets to sell. Any unsold tickets may be returned at no charge. Other benefits include free food, drinks, and parking, goodie bag from the sponsors, copies of the compilation CD to sell or give away, and great opportunities for exposure.

$2 from the sale of each ticket will be donated to the following organizations: Life Through Art, Right To Rock, Second Chance, Memorial Breast Center, and Operation Safehouse.
