At the Centre of Excellence Macoya, more than 80 artists representing different countries took part in the Trinidad and Tobago Tattoo Fest.
After a three-year absence due to covid19, the festival returns to show the best talents in the tattoo industry.
On June 3 and 4, more than 300 tattoos were done.
Dominic Jaglal told Newsday, after the award ceremony, that it had been a fantastic weekend.
Jaglal claimed that everything went according to plan and exceeded expectations.
“I must admit that the return of TT Tattoo Fest was a great success. The organization was excellent. “I thank all those who worked together to ensure that the art and business of tattooing in TT showed its growth once again.”
Jaglal stated that visitors were surprised and delighted by what they saw.
“We are fortunate to have such talented artists in our midst. Those who attended the Festival on Saturday and Sunday can appreciate this.” Sponsors have played a significant role in this. Thank you to everyone for your support.”
Jaglal said it was a great experience to demonstrate TT’s high-level organization and artistry.
“It’s not about making money. It’s about showing off the talent of our local artists and tattoo artists from other countries.” “Tattooing is a growing art; we will continue supporting it.”
This year artists from Venezuela, Cuba, St Lucia, Barbados, St Vincent, Curaçao, the UK, the US and many local artists participated.
The festival provided an opportunity for many other businesses.
It was a wonderful experience. Jaglal stated that they hope to be back next year with new surprises.
