CONTESTS
© Anthony Dubois
We were proud to welcome back our prestigious jury - tattoo legends Kari Barba, Filip Leu, Luke Atkinson and Bill Salmon.
The 25 contest winners were awarded with handcrafted ‘bell-trophies‘,
designed by one of the World‘s greatest machine builders, Bruno ‘Sailor‘ Kea, and Caro (Mademoiselle A Les Nerfs),
and other prizes from our sponsors.
These bells inspired the mechanism of the modern tattoo machine, used to this day.
