Alkmaar Tattoo Convention 2015

Alkmaar Tattoo Convention 2015

By Romy Fernandes from RomyClick Photography

During this whole year I’ve been visited a lot of Tattoo Conventions around The Netherlands, but I must say that this last one has had something completely different to the rest, an amazing location inside of a Gothic Church. On the weekend of 28 and 29 November, took place The 9th Alkmaar Tattoo Convention, in the city of Alkmaar, The Netherlands.

This city is situated in the province of North Holland, it’s a popular cultural destination for tourists. This great and so beautiful Gothic Church, ‘Grote or Sint-Laurenskerk’, it’s a landmark Protestant church. The building is located on the Koorstraat, named for its choir. The church is formally owned by the “Stichting Behoud Monumentale Kerken Alkmaar”, which conducts restoration activities and rents it out for weddings and concerts, but also facilitates various cultural initiatives of the city, like this Tattoo Convention.
