The Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention in Maastricht is about to kick off again! During the weekend of February 27th and 28th 2016, the tattoo event of the southern part of The Netherlands will take place at the MECC Maastricht.
The Tattoo, Body Art and Street Art Convention is an international event in which tattoo artists from home and abroad participate. This convention is known for its warm, cosy and friendly atmosphere for visitors and participants. The fact that the artists this year will settle in the foyer of the MECC for the first time, will contribute to this even more!
Visitors can of course be tattooed, or simply admire the art of tattooing. One can shop and stroll along the various colourful stands with clothing, piercing, jewellery, and more. The Grimeshop shows body paint demonstrations and also paints the most beautiful art on visitors if desired. Of course, as always, there will be lots of attention for street art at the convention: various street art artists will participate and let their creativity run wild.
Back at the convention: The Tattoo Preservation Service, which uses a careful and scientific method to preserve tattooed skin after death. This way your tattoo turns into a work of art that remains forever. Religious organization ‘De Kracht van de Veilige Naald’ (‘The Strength of the Safe Needle’) is present again to promote the acceptance of tattoos and will be tattooing, free of cost, the symbol of the oldest religion in the world – Tatooism – on everyone that wants it.
