Old Port


Old Port is a new concept at the Krakow Tattoo Festival. It was initiated by Ania Szymoniak from the Kia Ora Tattoo studio in Warsaw, who has been emotionally and mentally connected to the traditional tattoo scene for many years.

Zone 90 – We’ll be heard again


ZONE 90 - WE'LL BE HEARD AGAIN American tattoo artist Dan Higgs once said that traditional tattooing doesn't mean dwelling in the past, but rather nurturing something that existed long before and will endure in the future. It refers to a permanent state of being in the midst, not at the end. With that in mind, we consider this time to be the most appropriate to tell the young generation and tattoo enthusiasts about the beginnings of the scene in Poland, to share experiences and showcase achievements that many contemporary tattoo artists could only dream of. The primary goal of [...]

The official poster for Tattoofest 2023!


We are delighted to present a graphic promoting next year's sixteenth edition of the Tattoofest festival. Its author is Kasia Zagorska from the Kult Tattoo. The traditional image of the female resident of Krakow first was featured on our posters with the 2009 edition. We are delighted to return to this motif, as we are constantly enchanted by elements of one of the most recognisable Polish folk outfits, which reflected the sense of beauty and high level of artistry attributed to peasant women. We also traditionally refer to the history and symbols of Krakow. This time with the maiden, who [...]
