TATTOOS CONTINUE TO GROW POPULAR IN THE MODERN WORLD
Tattoos are a passion for some and an art form for others.

“The tattoo show is an event that we know will draw different and varied visitors, keen to be educated, experience the art and be entertained. Some enthusiasts travel around the world to take part in tattoo shows, it is a time in which this art is experienced on one’s own skin and, it is difficult not to be affected by the unique atmosphere that makes tattoos a very familiar and easy form of body art for everybody’” said Kirby Lian from Utopia Studio, the Official Event Partner who is also the show’s inspirational mentor.
