Here is lasts years show roundup and tattoo contest winners revisited…

Last year’s inaugural Singapore Tattoo Show ended on Sunday, 11 January 2009 with just over a total of 14,000 one-day and three-day passes sold, bringing the total number of attendees to 15,000 who attended the 3-day convention held at Singapore Expo from 9-11 January 2009. The show saw people from all walks of life, as well as a few thousand overseas visitors who flew down especially for the show.

The show saw an exhibitor line up more than 120 tattoo studios and 16 tattoo vendors from various countries, showcasing various tattooing techniques using machines and traditional tools and boasted an exciting programme featuring a body art-bikini fashion show, HPI drifting competition, Harley Davidson showcase, tattoo photography showcase, Art Fusion, live band performances and a daily tattoo contest (results below).

Well-known tattoo personalities Paul Booth of Last Rites Tattoo (USA), Chris Garver of Miami Ink (USA), and Bob Tyrrell of Night Gallery (USA) were at the Singapore Tattoo Show 09.

Kirby Lian, the brainchild and organizer of the show says, “I am very pleased with the outcome of the convention. Tickets sales were brisk from the start on Friday and we even had families and parents with toddlers attending the show. I’m glad that the show has achieved one of its objectives in educating the public on tattooing and the tattoo industry.”

From the response we have achieved, we are considering doing a bigger and more comprehensive show in 2010,” added Debra Tan, co-oganiser of the Singapore Tattoo Show 09, “So look out for details in October 2009!”

World’s Hottest 101 Men With Tattoos

It’s only fitting to share this post with all the Singapore Tattoo Show fans – remember to mark your diaries Tat2 2010 is coming Jan 8 9 & 10 2010… Chris Garver returns to Singapore Tattoo Show !!!

We’ve been tracking tattooed celebrities at Vanishing Tattoo for more years than we care to remember, squinting at fuzzy photos of beautiful people in a selfless effort to see if that blurry spot on the backside of a B-list body is really an unknown piece of body art – and all for your enjoyment, our faithful audience. We endlessly (or so it seems) scour the Internet, straining and sacrificing our eye-sight so that others may gaze upon the tattoos of the rich and famous in wonderment.

And in the past we have assembled lists of who among the beautiful people had tattoos. The one thing those beautiful people had in common besides their body art was their gender. Now granted, every single one of the lists we have analyzed in the past, was drawn from among the numerous annual Men’s magazines’ inventories of the “sexiest”, “most desirable” and “most beautiful” women in the world.

And the women in our audience cried foul. Long and hard… at least for girls that is. So in deference to the smarter, fairer, and more perceptive sex, we have attempted to level the playing field. We listened. Frankly, we were afraid not to. So we consulted with some bright beautiful body art babes of our own and asked them who they considered to be the hottest tattooed men on the planet.

See the list here: World’s Hottest 101 Men With Tattoos for 2007.

The Conference Starts Before Anyone Shows Up

David Meerman Scott’s view on Social Media for events highlighting Singapore’s 1st Tattoo Show as an examnple…

The 1st Singapore Tattoo Show, held Jan. 9–11, 2009, was endorsed and supported by the Singapore Tourism Board and included show ambassador Chris Garver of Miami Ink. The goal was to get 5,000 visitors to the show, where more than 120 artists from around the globe representing all the various modern tattoo styles ticked away with their machines and all sorts of fun and funky exhibitors showed their wares.

Promotions leading up to the Singapore Tattoo Show were anything but ordinary, and what I find particularly impressive as a show promotional tool was the Facebook Group called Tattoo Artistry that was started by organizers 3 months prior to the event. Facebook turned out to be a terrific way for people to connect well before the physical event, and the Tattoo Artistry Facebook Group quickly gained 3,000 members, securing a place as the center of this artwork for the region. The physical show started with a virtual group.

The passion of the members of the Tattoo Artistry Facebook Group for “their event” meant thousands of people promoting to their Facebook friends. The online community aggregated people eager to attend the live event. Instead of relying on buying expensive advertising, a community of passionate fans built anticipation and buzz.

With more than 15,000 people attending, the Singapore Tattoo Show brought three times the expected number of attendees Just as interesting, The Tattoo Artistry Facebook group is now Asia’s largest social network for the tattoo industry, tattoo enthusiasts, and fans. The group will continue to grow as an online destination to connect, and plans are already underway for the 2nd Singapore Tattoo Show in 2010 with the Facebook group as the center of the free promotions for the event.

Crazy not to include Social Media – itsReal

Marketing Interactive news report on 1st Singapore Tattoo Show 2009 and Social Media

Singapore – 15,000 people showed up at the inaugural Singapore Tattoo Show, a figure three times more than expected, thanks to some clever marketing on social media platform phenom Facebook.

The three-day convention, held on 9 January at Singapore Expo, was organized by Kirby Lian who appointed Pacific West Communications to handle the marketing communications for the show.

“Being the first time, funds were limited,” Andrew Peters, regional director Asia Pacific, for Pacific West Communications, said.

aplink3

Pacific West was engaged by organizers to market the Singapore Tattoo Show over three months ago, with initial PR efforts using the traditional press release proving to be less viral. Peters then decided to ramp up the social media aspect of the strategy – aggressively tapping on Facebook and his blog.

“With Facebook, I initially seeded it with 100 of my friends which I thought would be open to the idea of tattoos and then decided to look around the internet and set up Google Alerts for anything related to tattoos or anything related to Chris Garver [a celebrity tattoo artist who was invited to the convention],” Peters said.

In October, Peters created the Facebook Group called Tattoo Artistry as a promotional tool for the event and within two weeks it went from 100 people to 1000. It now has become an online regional tattoo community with nearly 4,000 members.

“I think if any event company not looking at least to engage social media as a way to generate activity for an event before it actually happens, are crazy,” he said.
