INKCARCERATION 2019 – Shinedown, Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, and MORE! July 12-14 in Mansfield, OH!

By Cathy Moore


From July 12 through July 14, the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, OH will be transformed into Ohio’s rock and tattoo event of the summer: Inkcarceration. This rock and roll extravaganza offers more than just one of the best music lineups of all the other festivals in 2019. There will also be dozens of tattoo artists on site to ink festival goers, the terrifying Escape from Blood Prison attraction, phenomenal food trucks from all over the state, and tours of the historic reformatory made famous by the movie The Shawshank Redemption.


First and foremost Inkcarceration is a music festival and will feature headliners Shinedown (Friday), Godsmack (Saturday), and Five Finger Death Punch (Sunday). Other bands taking the stage throughout the weekend include Skillet, Taking Back Sunday, Motionless in White, Red Sun Rising, Seether, I Prevail, Starset, and so many more.

Make sure you arrive early each day to catch some of the awesome openers like Monster Dolls – a professional horror-themed, all female group of entertainers that put on a choreographed show filled with lots of props, crowd interaction and tons of fun! Other opening bands include The Everyday Losers, Eyes Set to Kill, Rivals, and Beyond Unbroken (which features former members of Escape the Fate).


Thinking about getting a tattoo at Inkcarceration? There will be almost 70 tattoo artists on site with a wide variety of specialties and styles. Walk-ins are possible, but discouraged. Check out the Inkcarceration Tattoo page to see the artists planning to attend and make an appointment ahead of time.


And don’t miss the epic Escape from Blood Prison – the annual Halloween haunted house attraction held at the Ohio State Reformatory every year from September through early November.  Inkcarceration attendees get a special preview of the spooky experience all weekend long.  Once Blood Prison takes over the Reformatory it gets filled with bloodthirsty inmates waiting for victims to enter and try to make it through the facility alive! Enter if you dare!


Inkcarceration is my favorite of all the summer festivals around the country, and I can’t wait for July 12 to get here! Check out the Inkcarceration website for more details and to get your tickets. You don’t want to miss this one!
