Taking place at the SulAmerica Space on January 16th, 17th, and 18th in downtown Rio de Janeiro is the third annual celebration of Tattoo Week Rio 2015. Tattoo artists, lovers, and collectors congregate to make this the largest tattoo convention in Latin America. Klan Tattoo Tattoos, Events Ltda and everyone else involved has put forth a tremendous effort to make this weekend the most memorable yet.
Both national and international renowned artists will occupy up to 180 booths. Gatherings of this magnitude are always incredible experiences considering the amount of talent saturating one area. The energy within a tattoo convention of this size is a feeling you have to experience to understand. You have the ability to share your work with people, show off your art, add to your collection, and meet individuals from all over the globe who eat, sleep, and breathe tattoos.
It's expected that artists will take thousands of flash tattoos. If you want to take home a permanent souvenir from this tattoo convention, make sure you have a little something drawn up or a reference picture for the artist. Keep in mind every artist has their own style and try to have an idea of which artist you want to do your tattoo. You can check out the full list of attending artists here!
Tattoo conventions often bring together people who are already enthralled by the art and see it as pure beauty. Rio Tattooo will feature a "Miss Tattoo" contest, which is geared to help break the taboo against tattooed women - a concept that is still not accepted by all. This competition brings a certain energy to Tattoo Week with dozens of contestants sporting their unique styles, killer ink, rockin bodies, and beautiful smiles. All ages, body types, and races are encouraged to strut their inked out stuff. If you think you have what it takes to win Miss Tattoo, you can sign up here.
Painful Pleasures is proud to be sponsoring this massive congregation of tattoos, body piercings, incredible artists, entertainment, and educational opportunities. Ticket information is available on Tattoo Week Rio 2015's official website. If you can make the trip to be a part of this unforgettable weekend, we highly suggest you do. You won't regret it.
