COMPETITION CATEGORIES 2023!
The upcoming edition of the festival is just around the corner, so we want to share the information everyone has been waiting for. We present to you 9 categories, with 7 of them being held in a dual mode, just like last year, separately for healed tattoos and fresh tattoos. Additionally, we are introducing 2 new, highly popular categories – Two-Day Tattoo and Cooperation. Take a look at the lineup of this year’s judges, who will evaluate the entries with a full panel of 5 people. Moreover, in each category, we will have an expert judge to assess the alignment of the work with the specific tattoo style. Detailed information and characteristics of individual styles can be found on the PROGRAM page.
