Tattoo enthusiasts and artists will fill the Hard Rock Hotel with ink when the Pattaya International Tattoo Festival kicks off in August.
AIM Global Service Co. and the Pattaya Technician Association will host the Aug. 24-25 convention, the third to be held in Pattaya since 2009. The event offers tourists and tattoo lovers alike to view body art and even get their own.
Also on offer will be information on health, the history of tattoos, tattoo trends, cleanliness, and equipment. There also will be a children’s drawing contest and art contests.
The final day will see awards presented for outstanding body art in several categories.
