The 4th Jyväskylä International Tattoo, rock and Art Festival is a small convention with the looks of a big one.
Small because I am limiting the amount of artists at 70 , so that each artist has enough work, but with the looks of a big convention, so all the bonuses from big conventions: live music concerts and other shows, a great stand with good lighting, 12 contest categories and many more surprises.
Every edition, this event is getting more and more popular and is adding to the shows as well as events happening during the convention and also after.
The Convention is organised by local tattoo studio Simply Tattoo with no other organization group or clubs, so it is an event created by artists, for artists!
This Time, the convention will be held Friday 25 and Saturday 27. 05. 2018 in the conference and concert hall Paviljonki in Jyväskylä, Finland. We have changed the event to Friday Saturday due to a bigger demand form visitors for those days as opposed to the usual Saturday – Sunday.
Contest categories are: best realistic, small and large colour, small and large black and grey, best lettering, old school/ neo Trad, best Watercolour, best graphic, dottism, best of day Friday and best of day Saturday.
Only artists that have a stand at the Convention will be allowed to part take in the competitions. Only the best of days have to be done at the show, for other categories, the tattoos can be older. Each Tattoo can be entered in just one category plus best of day if done that day at the show.
