Perhaps one day, in the not-too-distant future, not having a single tattoo might render you a failure at most job interviews. A freak, an outcast; even worse, a conservative. Maybe even a terrorist.
If and until that day comes — be it a life-long horrible drunken mistake, a commemoration of a dead friend or family member, a reminder of a good time, Tinder match insurance, or just an idea you liked so much you decided to semi-immortalize it by putting it on your temporary physical vessel — tattoos are where it’s at today. And, we must admit, some are actually nice and, moreover, unconventional. Even the occasional tram stamp can be aesthetically enlightening. Don’t ask how we know…
Enter UNCONVENTION, Lisbon’s own celebration of the human body as a living canvas.
We’ll let them speak for themselves:
“Anjos70 in partnership with Françoise Tattoo invite 10 independent and alternative tattoo artists to make some classic tattoos. Visitors can view and/or make tattoos on the spot.” Includes international artists, musicians, food, drink, and more.
