Once again, INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival will take place at one of the most unique festival settings in
the country - the Ohio State Reformatory. 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 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,
northern West Virginia, Michigan and southern Ontario. This is the perfect destination festival! Additionally,
INKCARCERATION features tent and RV camping for a true outdoor festival experience! See below for more details.

Stay tuned for more details coming soon regarding tattoo artists, gourmet food trucks, and more!

INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival promoters promise an epic year. "Building off such a strong inaugural
year, we are so stoked to give our fans even more in year two. With Billboard chart-topping bands such as Shinedown,
Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch leading the way, tattoo artists from around the globe, and the historic
backdrop of the haunted Shawshank Prison, INKCARCERATION 2019 will be the don't miss rock event of the summer
in the Midwest!"

It's Halloween in July at INKCARCERATION 2019!

Mentioned above, 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!

"It's an honor to be able to open the doors of Blood Prison a couple months early and give the guests of
INKCARCERATION a few scares in July! The warden, his family and the Blood Prison inmates are all excited to meet
the fans at INKCARCERATION," says Vic Amesquita, manager of Blood Prison.
