All about the ink

Whether you have tattoos from your head to your toes or don’t have one drop of ink under your skin, the Cyprus International Tattoo Convention is an event everyone should experience at least once. Held at the Carob Mill in Limassol, lots of tattoo artists, tattoo enthusiasts, and the tattoo curious will gather next weekend to celebrate the ancient art of tattooing.

While the ink is a major attraction, there is much more to experience during this three-day festival. Getting a tattoo or watching an artist tattoo a friend is the main objective of attending the show. But there is live entertainment and music, as well as beverages, performance shows and body art to take in.

The fun starts at 1pm on Friday welcoming in the public and browsing through the artists. If you’d like to get a tattoo done, organisers recommend booking well in advance or going super early to try and get an appointment with your preferred artist. Tattoo Competitions at will start at 6pm followed by a unique performance by local rock n’ roll band Orgasmatrons at 9pm.

A live body airbrushing will take place at 2pm on Saturday by Savvas Koureas with a dance performance by True Enforcers of Advance Movement at 6.15pm. Popular rock band FUSE will then take the stage at 9pm.

Sunday will have another live body airbrushing event as well as a graffiti presentation by EDMON 1419 and a live performance by The Ladderman. The tattoo competitions will be rounded up with the highlight being the Best of the Show.
