The Rust Belt Chronicles has You Covered at Ink In The Clink 2017 this Weekend!

This weekend promises to be special at 3rd Annual Ink In The Clink 2017 Tattoo and Music Festival (July 14, 15 ,16th) between the tattoo artist selling their creative art, national, regional and local bands and musicians performing, tour of the prison and the premiere of Blood Prison at The Ohio State Reformatory MRPS. In the history of Richland County this weekend will be the largest Tattoo and Music Festival ever!

With hotels, motels and campgrounds being sold-out and the Mansfield area and beyond seeing the influx of visitors, the event will likely sell-out. We recommend if you plan on attending to purchase your tickets now, before the old prison is put on lockdown!

Our photos will be uploaded to the Ink In The Clink Facebook page after each bands performance with additional photos of the weekend activities at this exciting event as needed. We will also be broadcasting “Live” interviews as they happen on our Facebook page featuring many “Rock Moments” and videotaping exclusive interviews for our video show, “Rock Lines”.

As I mentioned earlier, this will be our first trek into a full production of media production, encompassing such a large scale of tasks in order to give attendees at Ink In The Clink current information and those of you who are unable to attend as well! All of our taped events are “one-take and done”, meaning the coverage is always interesting, funny and unique.
