The first Rock The Ink was held in Providence RI in October 2008 where 25,000 fans attended over the weekend. Just in case you missed it… here’s what the bands who played it said about Rock The Ink - Providence 2008: “It was a blast. Lots of killer bands rocked on multiple stages & tons of tattoo booths” Godsmack. “Rock The Ink was kick ass” Joint Damage. “Rock The Ink ‘08 was great and this year will be even better” Hyngd.


In October 2009, the show appeared in Albuquerque. Local band “When Darkness Falls” said “We loved Rock The Ink, not only were we treated great but we met some great motivated individuals who promoted the gig… It was a great chance for some good band exposure, we received tons of feedback days after the show, which has definitely boosted our on-stage performances.”

The creator and producer of Rock The Ink is Paul Zukoski. A music industry veteran, Paul mounted and produced the ground breaking Tattoo The Earth tour in 2000. Fondly nicknamed the caravan of pain, Tattoo The Earth toured with more than 30 bands and over 50 top tattoo artists to 20 cities nationwide. The line up of amazing bands on Tattoo The Earth included Metallica, Stone Temple Pilots, Slipknot, Slayer, Sevendust, Sepultura and so on. And even though they were new on the scene, Paul recognized the talents of hed(pe) and Mudvayne (their first tour) and invited them on the show to be part of history. Rock The Ink festivals have featured Godsmack, Sevendust, Kottonmouth Kings, Mushroomhead, (hed)p.e. to name a few.
