Their artists Michelle Grey and Clay Castles participated in the expo, which showcases the best Canadian and international tattoo artists. On Saturday, Grey won Tattoo of the Day, which, according to Charles Finnes of Don’t Look Down Tattoo, is “a big deal and well deserved.”

Finnie says the award is voted on by a panel of tattoo industry professionals.

"This not only showcases Michelle's skill but brings light to the talented tattoo artists that call the Okanagan home," he said.
