Bogota, Colombia hosted it's 9th International Tattoo Convention with 3 days of inkslinging, pin up girls, celeb guests and freak shows.
Colombia like many South American countries has a heavy Catholic influence and sense of tradition in their culture. That doesn't stop the growing number of tattooed men & women coming together every November in a huge International convention for three whole days of tattooing, music and shows featuring tattoo artists and performers from all over Latin America.
Thanks to Colombian photographer Mauricio Beltran Rodriguez at www.mauriciobeltran.com.co #fuckstyle for collaborating with me on this post.
There were people from all walks of life and even families with their kids enjoying a weekend out of tattooing fun. Some of Colombia's best tattoo artists were out working hard...
Here are just a few of the awesome results from the weekend coming from all kinds of popular styles from Neo Traditional, graphic script, dotwork and Japanese to realism and trash polka.
