Expo Tattoo Belize promises to be spectacular
Monday, May 23rd, 2016
Tattoo lovers unite! Expo Tattoo Belize will be in San Pedro for one very unique, colorful, loud weekend of inking, music, freak shows and fun. From Saturday, May 28th through Sunday May 29th, talented international tattoo artists from such places as Bolivia, México, USA, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Belize will be on the island to provide their unique artwork.
Once considered taboo, tattoos have become a very popular method of expressing one’s uniqueness, in a very permanent way. The tattoo can be simple or elaborate, taking anywhere from a few minutes to hours of needling and ink. The artist one chooses often reflects a unique style that adds to the thrill of the artwork.
For an entrance fee of $20, you will be able to venture to the San Pedro High School Auditorium where you can select one of the top notch artists to use your skin as canvas! (Prices for the tattoos vary, but organizers have ensured that you get the best value for your money). For those seeking the extra crazy, there will be a freak show courtesy of Victer Max. The pierced, tattooed, horned man will be alternately freaking you out and amazing you with his skills!
For the music lovers, the bands Verge of Umbra and Almost 7 will be performing as well! There will be Deejays throughout the day, providing awesome soundtracks to the needles etching artwork on skin. You cannot miss this spectacular festival of creativity and ink! See you there!!
Tickets are available at Belizean Ink (Wimpas Tattoo Shop). Festival hours run from 10AM to 10PM.
