Blood Prison preview at Ink in the Clink


Horror to strike Ink in the Clink 2017 and it’s going to get bloody!

(Mansfield, Ohio. June, 2017). The popular Ink in the Clink (IITC) event hosted by Rick and Susan Fields at the famous Ohio State Reformatory historic site is set to return for its 3rd year in July of 2017. With this unique event consisting of over 80 tattoo artists, oddity vendors, and headlining bands, the 2017 show will also offer an exclusive looks at the terror behind the forthcoming Halloween attraction, Blood Prison.

While Blood Prison doesn’t officially open until the fall, Haunt Manager, Vic Amesquita promises a gory- glance at his artistic direction for the event, which is to be held in dark dungeons of the 130 year-old prison during IITC 2017.  Visitors of IITC will be able to put their courage to the test by purchasing either a one time pass for the haunt ($5) or a day-pass for multiples trips through the haunt ($15). Both of these options will give thrill-seekers a chance to escape the throngs of sinister, sewer monsters and torturous, prison punishments as well as the dozens of crazed criminals furiously trying to capture them as one of their own.

“We are really excited and honored to preview our brand new haunted attraction, Blood Prison,” said Haunt Manager and owner of Undead Studios, Vic Amesquita. “Rick and Susan Fields are great people to work with and have created such a cool and unique event here in Mansfield. We hope to add another great experience to their amazing event and give visitors just a taste of what’s to come in the fall at Blood Prison!”
