We’re here to present the third edition of a legendary convention in Italy: the Bologna Tattoo Expo, which – after twenty-three years of silence – was reborn two years ago thanks to Marco Leoni and Genziana.

Once again everyone answered the roll call: the youngest talents, accomplished tattooists in the scene who are now riding the wave, and the “old generation” who wrote the history of tattooing especially in Italy as well as all over the world.

A truly respectable parterre enlivened a top-notch and thrilling event, the likes of which hasn’t been seen for some time. Shows and art exhibits enhanced an appointment which celebrated body art in a festive and family-like atmosphere, just like old times: with great respect and positivity.

Take a look at the artworks that were immortalized by our lenses as you await the surprises that will be announced in upcoming months on this website: www.tattooexpo.info.
