Major International Tattoo Conference coming up ! The project WWTC (WorldWideTattooConference) was conceived in 2011 by Alex De Pase. The original idea was to get together different talented tattoists in an itinerant multicultural context who would travel around the world, stopping over in significant European and American spots to share and offer their expertise and personal views of their work to the global tattoo community.The project came to life in October 2011, when the first WWTC was held in Rome. The artists involved were: Nick Baxter, Jeff Gogue, Alex De Pase and Boris, sided by the tattoo marketing expert Gabe Ripley. It was a great success and attendees were enthusiastic about the experience they had had the opportunity to share.Then it was the turn of Chicago in April 2012 with Nick Baxter, Bob Tyrrell, Jeff Gogue, Boris, Guy Aitchison and Alex De Pase and its WWTC was even more successful than Rome: 250 guests rallied from all over the world to assist at the best tattoo seminars ever put together in recent times. The WWTC project was just the right stuff and it had to go on….The third edition took place in September 2012 at the Tobacco Dock in London, just before the 8th International London Tattoo Convention took off. This time the venue was different: the WWTC was hosted by a Tattoo Convention, in the same rooms that would have been crammed with astonishing tattoists a couple of days later. The London WWTC was rougher and wilder, but the most positive expectations were met for the third time. Lots of European young tattoo artists flocked to the Tobacco Dock buildings and were impressed by the sense of cohesion and belonging to a global community of people who want to share their knowledge without any barrier and where limits or dishomogeneous levels do not exist. The masters Bob Tyrell, Joe Capobianco, Boris, Nikko Hurtado, Stephane Chaudesaigues and Alex De Pase and the apprentices are just members of the same family and everybody is there to take their turn.At the Boston tattoo Conference the relators were: GUY AITCHISON _ BOB TYRRELL _ NICK BAXTER _ NIKKO HURTADO _ JEFF Gogue and ALEX DE PASENex conference, in the 2014 will be in ItalyBy joining the travelling WWTC, you will:- become familiar with the techniques and tricks used by many appreciated tattooists- be provided with different visions of the tattoo as a work of art in different styles- learn how to adjust your style and improve your performance- share your knowledge and ask questions to the artists during the discussion panels- submit pictures of your work to be assessed and evaluated by the artists during the criticism corner- take part in the WWTC award- be an active party in improving dialogue and communication among the global tattoo community- meet in person the best tattooists you’ve always looked up to as a model- have fun and be overjoyed by the sense of overwhelming familiarityDO NOT MISS IT!
