Tattoo Lovers Just Love Uniquely Singapore

Tattoo Pride for Tattoo Artistry – Singapore Tattoo Show Tat2 2010

Tattoo Lovers will descend upon Singapore in 2010 … seeking creativity,  education in responsible tattooing, observe fusion of east and west Tattoo Artistry … and 3 days of massive entertainment.

With the intention of not only providing a show for tattoo lovers, both in Singapore and Asia, but also wanting to ensure sufficient education in responsible tattooing amongst teenagers and young adults; the Singapore tattoo show is coming back for the 2nd time, bringing more entertainment and exposure to people through this unique form of art. Organized by Debra Tan and Kirby Lian from Utopia Studios, the show is to be held at the Singapore Expo, Hall 6B from 8 to 10 January 2010, starting from 12pm to 10pm on the 8th and 9th, and 12pm to 8pm on the 10th.

Tat2 2010 Event Invitation: Mingle with over 15,000 Tattoo Fans & Artists

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=141203425388&ref=mf

With guest appearance by Kim Saigh (LA ink), Tim Hendricks (Gold Rush tattoo), Michelle Myles (Daredevil tattoo and winner of TLC’s Tattoo War Competition at the 6th Annual Boston Tattoo Convention), Shige (Yellow Blaze Tattoo, Japan) and returning to this show again will be Chris Garver (Miami ink) and Bob Tyrell (Night Gallery). Also attending the show will be VIP guest, Matt Booth, celebrity jewellery designer and owner of Room101 who is also the guest judge for this upcoming year’s tattoo show with Room101 being the major sponsor for this event.

People attending Tat2 2010 can be prepared for a wide variety of visual feasts with a line up that includes Rubberboy’s performance, Best male and female tattoo competition, and the first of its kind in Asia – Miss Tattoo Asia, alongside with over 300 internationally regarded artists coming together to showcase their talent in full view of audiences who are fans or just mere curious. This is the place to be if you are an avid tattoo collector or  people who are interested to see what Tattoo today is all about, a culture that used to be taboo but is so widely welcomed in recent times.

The newest addition to this coming year’s show is the Miss Tattoo Asia segment. Probably the first of its kind, it attempts to open the minds of the general public that beauty comes in all forms, especially in recent times where people are exposed to so many different things and the form of beauty is somewhat subjective. Trying to break away from the stereotypical female beauty, it aims to address a form of liberalism and modernist way of perceiving beauty.

Apart from this unique beauty contest, there is also the best male and female tattoo competition where proud owners of beautiful masterpieces on their bodies get to flaunt and compete to stand a chance to win the top prize. You’d be surprised to see how realistic and beautiful a tattoo can get, as the standard and works of tattoo artists are getting better and better, especially with quite a handful of artists who already have a history of doing fine arts before they ventured into tattooing.

The message of this show to entertain is made evident with other programmes such as the Rubberboy, who has three Guinness World Records for being the most flexible man alive. Daniel Browning Smith, who is also known as the Rubberboy, is an actor, entertainer and contortionist who also went on shows such as Ripley’s Believe it or not, the Oprah Winfrey show and the grand prize winner of 30 Seconds to Fame. Works by finalists of Beauty is Skin Deep, a body art design competition, will also be displayed in the art gallery section as well as works of graffiti artists and some of the tattoo artists’ works, showcasing their talents and passion on canvas.

And we said entertainment – Singapore’s legendary Velvet Underground is our party venue sponsor and there will be nightly events to give artists and fans the opportunity to mix, dance & party as only possible in uniquely Singapore – Asia’s Jewel city.

Travel Industry Seeks Socially Responsible Second Life

In 2007, I met with Management at Suntec Exhibition Centre in Singapore regarding virtual worlds and the opportunity for Real & Virtual World events to be run in Unison with each other. Singapore recently held the IT Show at Suntec, 770,000 people packed the centre and SGD58.5 million was spent in four days – how much more could have been spent if they held a virtual event for those unable to make it to Singapore over the 4 stipulated days – i wonder ?

Excerpt from Travel Industry Article below:

At the ITM’s 37th annual conference in Liverpool this week, the people responsible for spending an annual £34bn ferrying business executives and staff around the world will hear that physical attendance is not always the ideal way to convene conferences and confabs. Instead, the technology of online virtual worlds can bring delegates together in an equally productive, immersive, businesslike environment which is also socially responsible, greatly reducing the impact of corporate travel on the environment.

Alan Haymes, director of London-based New Business Horizons – which provides Second Life offices, meeting and conference facilities for other clients as diverse as Universal Music Group and the London Chamber of Commerce – will be leading the ‘Meeting in Cyberspace’ session at the ITM conference, explaining the business benefits of events that take place in a virtual world and comparing the experience not only to physical meetings but to the ‘traditional’ virtual option of teleconferencing.

Haymes comments: “Virtual world conferencing is a more complete experience than the webcam or teleconferencing suite, which means that the ITM’s initiative extends beyond saving money and improving CSR. In a virtual world, delegates can immerse themselves fully in the conference environment and truly feel part of a big event. Breakout and one to one sessions can be easily incorporated, there’s less pressure on performance and appearance … and it can be more fun.”

I also shared this idea with Twinity management….
