3rd Annual Pattaya International Tattoo Convention to be held at end of August

The Pattaya International Tattoo Convention was so successful during its first two years in the city, organizers are about to hold their third annual event. The 3rd annual Pattaya International Tattoo Convention will be held once more in the seaside resort of Pattaya, but this time at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Events at the convention will include things like ‘Best of the Day Color’, ‘Best Small Black and Grey’, ‘Best New School’, and ‘Best Sexy Lady Tattoo’, as well as ‘Best Dragon’ and ‘Best Tribal’.

You can expect to find both Thai tattoo artists and international tattoo artists well represented, as well as information booths about tattoo equipment, designs and trends.

Getting tattoos in Thailand — Bangkok and Pattaya

Of course, getting tattoos is something many tourists do while in Thailand, as the country is well known for having excellent tattoo artists.

That is why, if you would like a tattoo and have not yet been inked at one of the best tattoo parlors in Bangkok, you might want to consider heading to Pattaya for the day.

However, if your goal is to get a ‘sak yan’ or ‘yantra’ tattoo similar to the one Angelina Jolie is famous for (and which she also had done in Thailand), don’t miss reading this before you do.
