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!”
