You knew it was coming. America’s first-ever tattoo-themed cruise will take place on Royal Caribbean International’s Liberty of the Seas next year. And yes, there will be opportunity to get inked onboard – and by some of the country’s best tat artists, no less.

The four-day Ink or Swim group sets sail from Fort Lauderdale on April 16, visiting Cozumel. Organizers are tattoo lifestyle magazine Rebel Ink and award-winning photographer Dan Howell.

Special activities will include an onboard body art showcase and inking experience, burlesque shows, tattoo contests, complimentary photo shoots and a private beach party in Cozumel.

Artists who have signed on include Tatu Baby, a fan favorite of Spike TV’s “Ink Master.”

Fares for the cruise are from $970 per person, double occupancy, and include $100 credit towards an onboard tattoo.
