Tattoo Weekend 2017
12 - 14 May 2017
The second convention of tattoo artists was held at Lenexpo, one of the largest exhibition venues in Russia, located in the historical part of St. Petersburg, on the Gulf of Finland coast.
Tattoo Weekend 2017 was three days long and traditionally different from the previous conventions.
The list of nominations was extended: the neo tradition, the new school, and the sleeve arm/leg became separate nominations. We launched the contest for the most dark and gloomy tattoo subjects. The best work in color, black-n-white, and realistic style was announced at the end of each day. And on the last day the Grand Prix and the Best of the Show (for multi-day or team-work project) winners of the Tattoo Weekend were announced.
Tattoo Weekend 2017 hosted 200 artists from Russia, CIS, Europe, Asia, and over 3,000 visitors. Our partners from Sorry Mom and Lou Rubino (boss of the World Famous Tattoo Ink) judged several nominations.
Tattoo Weekend 2017 was bright and memorable.
However, we still have a space for improvement for the 2018 event!
