– fresh tattoos = tattoos done during the festival, for booths holders
– now of registration to a given category you must show the tattoo or its photo for preliminary verification. The registrant has the right to refuse the entry of a given tattoo into a given or any category. In this way tattoos of too low level or not fitting to the category will be verified
– tattoos will be evaluated in terms of compliance with the style and technical level
– each tattoo can be submitted only to one category

Let’s meet 15. Tattoofest Convention z Banana-Ink!
Chillout with SUPERSKLEP
This year SUPERSKLEP is responsible for your relaxation at the festival. SUPERSKLEP. On their behalf we would like to invite you to the outdoor chillout zone, where with a drink or a coffee in your hand you can listen to graceful tunes by DJ Maślak. In the SUPERSKLEP zone we will also be painting boards, which will go out into the world to adorn the walls of the best skate shops and tattoo studios.
In the WORKSHOP zone you will also meet Krysia, who has recently been studying the art of creating linocut, a graphic technique, the effect of which is very close to the oldest relief printing technique. The classes will consist in carving a pattern in linoleum, which you will later print on special paper. So it’s chisels and paint-dipped rollers at work! According to the workshop leader, you don’t need super drawing skills to create cool things using this technique, just good tools and a bit of manual dexterity.
The workshop will take place on Saturday 11:00-14:00 and Sunday 14:00-17:00. Places are limited, so first come, first served! The WORKSHOP area can be found in the Lobby.
EXHIBITION AND SALE OF LINOCUTS
Diana (ttoo_diaz)i Alex ( but_tattooer) unfortunately cannot be with us during this year’s Tattoofest. There is a war going on in their country at the moment…
However, they managed to provide us with their original linocuts. These images are full of Ukrainian symbols, a sense of injustice and sadness, but also full of hope.
You can not only see them, but also buy them in our ART zone.
30% of the proceeds from the sale of the works will be donated to help the needy in Ukraine
OUR HOSTS Karolina Duszkiewicz & Maciek Heczko
Karolina, a native of Krakow, has been involved with the pop punk band CF98 for over 12 years. Her music career took her all the way to the final of the 4th edition of X Factor. She is a fan of whisky and silly jokes, colourful tattoos and cats, to which she is allergic. You can’t get bored with her.
Maciek also comes from a Cracovian background and is a daily manager of Studio Kult Tattoo Jubilat. His texts and interviews can be found in Tattoofest magazine and the skateboarding magazine Barrier. Maciek’s event portfolio includes over a hundred events, such as the Etnies European Open, stops at the Polish Skateboard Championships and Jibb Jams. One thing is certain: the boy talks!
