India is definitely and fast-becoming a favorite home-ground for all kinds of unique gigs and festivals. The latest in this regard is the Heartwork Tattoo Festival (HTF) which ended on 6 December, Sunday night. 60 tattoo-artists from world-over and across India descended to take park in the festival.
The first of its kind, HTF is essentially a tattoo-convention and was more than happy to have Indira Gandhi Sports Complex at ITO Delhi play its host for the first edition.
The three-day-long fest was organized with the aim spread make aware and educate. “The aim is to educate Indian society about tattoos. People think tattoos are just a style statement. It’s actually a reflection of the soul on the body,” said Arvind Garg, one of the main-men behind the HTF.
Every tattoo-artist was provided with a booth, they came equipped with their inks, machines, and reams of papers with tattoo-designs on them.
During the three days of fest, the ambience inside of the stadium was akin to an underground party. But in all truth it was tattoo-fest which saw a huge turn-out. People of all ages – adults and children sauntered around watching, getting their tattoos crafted by the artists, completely cool and unaffected by the constant buzzing of the needle or the crescendo of the music playing out on the stage.
All those with a fetish for tattoos opined that the HTF was “tattoo art paradise.”
One of the co-founders of the festival and a well-known tattoo artist, Sameer Patange said, “There is so much talent in this country, which is not recognized. We hope this platform will give us and the younger ones more respect,” he concluded.
