The International Athens Tattoo Convention 2017 – 12-13-14 May 2017
After last year’s big anniversary (the Athens convention celebrated its tenth birthday in 2016), this year’s ink and body art event has proven another huge success. And the word on the street is that this is one of the few that still has that authentic atmosphere which recalls the great events of the ’90s.
We’re living in a time where tattoo conventions seem to be springing up all over the world, but the hallmark of the one held in the Greek capital is the easy-going family feel. Ideal for artists and visitors who come here simply because it’s a great chance to hang out together. And a special round of applause for the organiser, Mike The Athens, who orchestrated a friendly helpful team who, as always, turned these three days into an unforgettable experience.
The city was awash with tattoo artists from all over the world. Among these, Rudy Fritsch from Italy, the guys from Three Tides in Japan, Theo Jack from Stockholm, Bill Loika from Holland, Benjamin Laukis from Australia and a lot of big names from the US: Carlos Rojas, Bob Tyrrell, Mike Chambers, Norm and Big Meas. And plenty of Greeks, of course, wonderful hosts, including Dr. Pepper and Alex & Kostas from Dirty Roses.
