Welcome to Tattoo Week SP 2017 . Around you will find more than 3,000 national and international artists, more than 650 stands and a series of opportunities to get more involved in the universe of tattoo and body piercing. enjoy!
It is no exaggeration to claim that you are at the greatest event of its kind in the world. It has become a habit to bring together the best tattoo artists on the planet, presenting creations, products and services of the highest quality, sharing knowledge and establishing new networkings.
Attractions like the Miss Tattoo contest, shows, workshops with renowned tattoo artists from Brazil and abroad and the competition of tattoos in the most diverse styles are some of the attractions that make the success of the event. There are 5,000 people working on the event, including more than 3,000 tattoo artists, body piercer, body painter and artists in general. In addition, the presence of tattoo artists Mark Longenecker, James Vaughn Midres and Megan Jean Morris, from the Ink Master program are already confirmed. Not to mention the Brazilian tattoo artists such as Toshio Shimada, Alex Takahashi, Carlos Santana, Diego Cema, Diogo Silva, Tuzinho, among others, impossible to list here.
To contemplate all this, we expect the presence of more than 70 thousand people. It is a "thermometer" of this market, which arouses more and more interest and, swimming against the tide, grows vertiginously.
After all, it was the time when surfers, skaters, rockers, punks and headbangers monopolized attention by exhibiting art in one's own body. Today, more than half the world's population has at least one tattoo. And therefore, regardless of your lifestyle, there will be plenty of choice, whatever your taste, style or interest in the art of skin. And even the children can try the idea by visiting stands dedicated to make-up and paintings that simulate the real tattoos.
"We've been in the fight for seven years, everything is developed with a business mindset, and thanks to our partners and supporters, we have arrived where we are today," says tattoo artist Enio Conte, who created the event with his wife, Esther Gawendo.
For more than 30 years in the industry, Conte was a member of the extinct Tatuadores Association of Brazil, the first entity that defended the interests of this community in the country. He was also responsible for experimental events in the early 1990s, where the idea of what would be Tattoo Week, now a worldwide success, matured.
