If getting inked is on your mind, the India International Tattoo convention [IITC] is just the right place for you. In its second year now, the show puts up the latest trends, fashion and techniques in tattoo art. Seminars, training as well as demonstrations are scheduled combined with lots of music, get togethers, parties, food and fun for the participants and tattoo families.
It provides a platform for all tattoo professionals across the country. ‘There are around 40 to 50 tattoo artistes who have come together to learn at this convention. The inter-country participation at the event is a great learning experience. One of the major advantages is that the skills and techniques of the art gets upgraded,’ said Aditi Naithani, a participant and a tattoo artiste.
‘Tattooing as an art is interesting. It requires physical labour coupled with mental concentration. Once you indulge in it, you are transfered beyond the tangible and the audible. The more exposure you have, the more your artistic skills grow and conventions like these help to achieve that,’ added the 28-year-old.
