Barcelona Tattoo Expo
By Yvonne Mannix
This city is full of talented tattoo artists, with their work proudly exhibited on the skin of many of its inhabitants. There’ll be an increase in artists and tattoos this month with the arrival of the 18th edition of the Barcelona Tattoo Expo, with international tattooists showcasing their talents over three days at the Fira de Barcelona. So for any of you who’ve been thinking of getting a new, or a first piece, of ink, this could be your ideal opportunity.
Joining this celebration of skin art will be tattoo suppliers, custom cars and motorbikes from the US and Europe, a Breaking BBoy Battle and the All Styles IV dancers. The event will also host the final of the European Competition of inline “vert” skating, and they’ll have a four meter high, vertical half-pipe installed for the competition. More information on getting tattooed at the Expo can be found on their website and Facebook page.
