Returning for its sixth year the 2019 Roughrider Ink & Iron Expo (RIIE) will be bigger and better than ever.
RIIE is an event combining two separate genres that align when we compare the skill artistry and expression shared by tattoos and motorcycles. The weekend-long all ages event will feature the best of ink and iron with live tattooing from local and regional artists custom motorcycles and much more. RIIE stands by its commitment to give back to the community and will be donating a portion of ticket sales to Make-A-WishÒ North Dakota.
After previous years of designating separate areas for the tattoo artists and bike displays moving the expo to the Veterans Memorial Arena in 2018 brought all vendors onto one level for a more cohesive experience. The 2019 RIIE plans to bring more of both ink and iron to the arena as it continues to grow.
Aimed at providing education recognition and empowerment of the original canvas while also celebrating the incredible artistry of custom motorcycles RIIE creates an environment equally approachable for the novice as well as the most hard-core among all artists enthusiasts and fans.
In 2018 RIIE brought in over 60 tattoo artists and 100 motorcycles along with live music entertainment from Dirty Sexy Riot and special guests including radio personalities Lex and Terry.
