One of the greatest honors that any tattoo artist can be bestowed is an invitation to participate in the London Tattoo Convention. Not only because it's one of the largest tattoo conventions in the world, showcasing roughly 400 tattoo artists from around the globe, but because of the purity of the process.
In a world overrun by social climbing, networking, and "knowing the right people," Vialetto has established about as pure of a meritocracy as one can get with the London Tattoo Convention. He's looking to showcase the artists he considers to be the best, and that's it.
