Amateur and experienced tattoo artists from India and the world will showcase their skills at the Sixth Indian Ink Mumbai International Tattoo Expo 2014. Starting from October 31, the expo aims to offer a unique glimpse into the world of tattoos, art and lifestyle for everyone.
Indian Ink will engage top artists to do four free portrait tattoos of Sachin Tendulkar at the venue that will be judged by his former coach, Ramakant Achrekar
Visitors will not only be able to catch tattoo artists from around the world, and get inked, but also enjoy events like dancing, music and acts.
The event will kick off with a Rock gig by city artistes. Keeping the Halloween theme in mind, visitors can dress up in their most scary Halloween outfits on day one, and stand to win a crazy tattoo. The second day will feature workshops on techniques like slack lining, contact improvisation (a form of dance technique), capoeira, and poi. The event will also see body suspension being brought up in India for the first time. Day three will have B-Boying events and other acts apart from daily live tattoo contests.
There will be nearly 60 live booths featuring popular tattoo artistes/studios like Jads Tattoo (Nepal), Alex Stark (UK), Max Infernoink Galaverna (Italy) and several Indian names like city-based Alien Tattoos, among others. One can also shop for jewellery, clothes and accessories associated with tattoos.
From: October 31 to November 2
At: World Trade Centre, Cuffe Parade.
