Sailor Jerry presents Roughrider Ink & Iron Expo!
Scheels Arena, Fargo ND
What is RIIE?
The Roughrider Ink & Iron Expo(RIIE) is an event combining two separate genres that align when we compare the skill, artistry, and expression shared by tattoos and motorcycles. Over 60 artists will be tattooing on-site along with 130+ custom-built motorcycles on display throughout the venue.
RIIE is pleased to provide various entertainment during the weekend including Blue Belle’s Burlesque, live music, and an appearance from Danielle Colby of American Pickers. Numerous vendors from some of the region’s top clothing, jewelry, therapeutic massage, insurance, and motorcycle shops will also be present at the event.
Returning for 2017 is the popular Custom Helmet Silent Auction sponsored by Indian Motorcycles. Helmets donated by Biltwell Inc. will be decorated by motorcycle and tattoo shops along with local artists where all proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish® North Dakota.

When Danielle isn’t keeping the boys in line you can find her dedicating her time to performing, producing and advocating. Danielle is an executive producer of a historically significant documentary about legendary burlesque performer ‘Tempest Storm’. She is an ambassador for 'Batey Girls', a jewelry design program dedicated to empowering young girls and women victimized by sex trafficking and domestic violence within the Dominican Republic.
