SKIN combines all these elements into what has proven to be a captivating experience for patrons, performers, and artists alike. At Skin, Art: meets music. Music: meets party. Party: meets SKIN!

The concept for SKIN came after a group of friends had attended a major art show in Tampa. They then came to realize that the area needs more of this kind of art and the “appreciate art and make it a party” concept was exactly what they were looking for. Realizing that the Destination Tampa Bay area has exceptionally talented artists, the SKIN idea was born. SKIN provides the best in art and entertainment, showing the “sexy” side of the art forms while presenting world class entertainers. SKIN welcomes all erotic artists and their disciplines to display, provoke and excite our audiences. Our goal is to make this annual event a show where you can always find art, acceptance, fun, and a sexy good time!
