Wrocław – The City of Tattoo Fans
Our polish friend Kamila Burzymowska visited the Wrocław Tattoo Convention 2016 and took some amazing pictures for you! Here are some of the over 500 pictures she made for us (the rest you can find in our Tattoo Convention Pinterest Album)!
Almost 6000 people visited the 16th edition of Tattoo Konwent (Tattoo Convention), which took place on the 23th and 24th of April in Wrocław, one of the Polish cities. In the postindustrial interiors of two popular clubs: Pralnia Club and Zaklęte Rewiry about 150 tattoo artists presented their talents and skills.
Wrocław Tattoo Konwent visitors could not only take part in activities connected with tattoo art, but also entertained during concerts or alternative performances. Tattoo Konwent is the biggest Polish series of tattoo conventions which take place several times a year in five locations in Poland, including Wrocław. This place is certainly a city of tattoo fans.
Few weeks ago Wrocław Tattoo Konwent broke his last year’s record in attendance. During the 5th edition of Wrocław Tattoo Konwent, a jury rewarded the best tattoos in 9 contest categories. They chose 27 from among 341 inks. Tattoo Konwent’s sideshows are very popular with tattoo fans. This time the audience could admire a pole dance show by Berenika Nienadomska, who has gained popularity due to her success in Polish edition of Got Talent!
Among artists who had their performance during convention you could find also the yoyo master Mateusz Mendyka and Wheelove, who specializes in acrobatics on the circus wheel. Tattoo fans could also admire oldschool vehicles, buy unique clothes, find out how to make dreadlocks and try craft beer. Tattoo Konwent is also a festival of music.
During the event, 7 bands appeared on the stage. The music was very diversified. The lineup included such groups as: Maciej Szymczyk (electronic, ambient and ethnic music), Dj EPROM (electronic music), The Dog (hardcore), the legendary band Schizma (hardcore), The Fialky (punk rock), Pochwalone (modern folk), Syny (psycho rap). DJ Ronin, Macbeat (Subwena) and DJ Novicky played for people resting in the chill zone on the roof.
The next stops for Tattoo Konwent are: Gdańsk (23rd and 24th of July), Katowice (24th and 25th of September) and Łódź (26th and 27th of November)
