Tattoo Show comes to Singapore – itsReal

Tattoo show comes to town <!–10 min–>

By Bryan De Silva
Some activities at the event include a daily tattoo contest for the exhibitors. Some of the categories they will be judged on are: the best cover up, best tribal tattoo and most realistic tattoo. –PHOTO: THINK TATTOO

THE Singapore Tattoo Show at the Singapore Expo this weekend is an event of firsts.

The convention happening from Jan 9-11 is the first of its kind in Singapore and the first time tattoo artists from Asia and the west will come together and create art side by side.

The convention aims to breakdown stereotypes and the stigma of tattoos being the mark of gangsters and convicts.

‘The fusion of east and west tattoo artistry has been a personal passion of mine and the opportunity to share and educate the public with a community of creative artists is a dream come true,’ said show organiser Kirby Lian.

The owner of Utopia Tattoo Studio also said the convention was four years in the making and long overdue.

The event sees over 120 artists and exhibitors from around the world come together for the love of the art. A crowd of over 5,000 visitors from around the region are expected to attend the 3-day event.

Some activities at the event include a daily tattoo contest for the exhibitors. Some of the categories they will be judged on are: the best cover up, best tribal tattoo and most realistic tattoo.

Complimenting the live tattooing will be a bikini swim wear fashion show, live band performances and a remote control car drifting competition.

There will also be talks by tattoo luminaries, Chris Garver and Bob Tyrell, as they impart their knowledge and share their experiences with the crowd.

Tickets for the convention go for $18 for a one-day pass and S$50 for a three-day pass. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at www.tattoo.com.sg.

Singapore’s first tattoo show kicks off on Friday

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s first-ever Tattoo Show kicks off at the Singapore Expo on Friday and it is believed to be the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia. One main attraction during the three-day show is Chris Garver from the popular reality TV series, Miami Ink.

Organisers are spending up to S$300,000 for the first-ever Singapore Tattoo Show. With over 100 booths, 21 Singapore tattoo studios will also be showcased, besides other Asian and Western ones.

Another highlight is traditional tattooing from places like Borneo, and the industry hopes to change perceptions about tattooing.

Chris Garver, tattoo expert, Miami Ink, USA, said: “I was in Japan for a long time. There’re a lot of connotations with the Yakuza there. But the percentage of people who get tattoos who are Yakuza is very small compared to the people who aren’t Yakuza. So a lot of it is changing. A lot of American pop culture has influenced tattooing there.”

Kirby Lian, organiser, Singapore Tattoo Show, said: “I have ever tattooed a young 14-year-old girl who came with her mother and they both got the same tattoo on the ankle.”

While hoping to change perceptions, organisers also aim to highlight the tremendous skills involved.

Legends in the industry, such as Paul Booth of Last Rites Tattoo (USA), Robert Hernandez (Spain) and Bob Tyrrell (USA), will also be at the show.

The show was the result of organisers networking in various tattoo conventions overseas. They hope to have at least 15,000 people attend the event.

The organisers are also hoping to make this an annual show and maybe spice things up with performances from rock bands and even a motorbike show. – CNA/vm

Here is Sharon’s Entry:

Why I deserve to be tattooed by Chris Garver

Upon reaching legal age, I’ve started a humble private collection of body art, expressing personal pains, joys and marking milestones of growing up.  There is no better way to ‘grow’ this collection than having Garver leave his mark on me.  Based on my respect and admiration for his skills and artwork, it would be an honour to meet and work with him to mark a life milestone, while also remembering the lifetime experience of sharing something personal with one of the world’s greatest tattoo-ists.

logo-tagFrom young, my fascination with tattoos has been strong and body art intrigues me endlessly.  They are to me, an artistic expression displaying the skill of the tattoo-er as a confident and creative individual, the passions and life story of the tattoo-ee, and no matter design or colour, are awesome and personal pieces of art.  The process of inking myself to grow into and face up to different phases of my life, is a liberating and a personal experience that I enjoy through and through.  With this, my passion for ink and what tattooing means to me, I deserve to be inked by Garver – no one will appreciate it more than I!
