ADDITIONAL BADGES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE AT CHECK IN OR AT THE SHOW. YOU MUST ORDER THEM IN ADVANCE. Once you get to the show, you will have to pay regular prices for admission.
CLEAN UP - All vendors, exhibitors, artists, etc are responsible for their own mess at closing time and load out on Sunday. Any boxes, garbage, etc left behind at your booth will cause you to be charged a clean up fee (see contract)
TATTOO ARTIST/BOOTH BADGES are for artists and assistants ONLY. They are NOT to be used for your clients. All tattoo clients must have paid admission to Spooky Empire (ie: one day or weekend pass). If you are caught sharing your badges with attendees and/or clients: 1st Offense: You will be given a warning, 2nd Offense: your client will be sent to purchase a wristband, 3rd Offense: you will be asked to leave !
