GARDEN CITY - The United Ink Tattoo Arts Festival at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City is drawing more than 300 tattoo and graffiti artists from all around the world.

"Ink Master" reality TV star Sarah Miller is in especially high demand. She accepts one appointment per day, and says working inside of the Cradle is special.

"It's not in a convention hall, it's not at a hotel. It's something that is visually appealing," says Miller.

Organizers say the success of this event over the years goes hand in hand with the growth of the industry.

The event runs through Sunday.
