24th Frankfurt International Tattoo Convention

Extras - Issue 22

HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine was for a second consecutive year in Frankfurt for the Frankfurt International Tattoo Convention. This year the festival reached 24 years of organizing, making it one of the oldest tattoo festivals in Europe.

The festival took place on Friday the 22nd, Saturday the 23d and Sunday the 24th of April at the Messe, the international, and also giant, exhibition-trade center of Frankfurt and attracted thousands of visitors.

The participant tattoo artists reached the number of 600 - a very large number - and their origins were from 20 different countries. Among them there were Greek tattooists such as Christos Galiropoulos, Lazaros Brone, Aggelos Tfb and Dimitris Dimopoulos, while HeartbeatInk participated with its own stand. 

We would like to thank the organizer Tommy Köhler for the kind invitation and warm hospitality, as well as congratulate him and his team for their active charity.
