Puerto Rico is hosting this weekend La Isla Tattoo Fest, the Caribbean’s largest tattoo convention, where tattoo and body-art artists from Puerto Rico and the region, as well as other countries of the world, will be on hand to display their expertise and admire one another’s work.
The festival’s seventh edition includes a tattoo competition, one for body piercing, and live entertainment at the event reflecting a certain modern-day lifestyle.
Among the almost 100 participants who will take part in the convention are Juan Salgado, the urban tattoo artist known professionally as Angel’s Tattoonator; Bengie Archilla, who is well-known for the realism of his designs; and Noel Roman (Nono’s), among many others.
The event is being held at the Hotel Embassy Suites in Isla Verde, in the Puerto Rican capital’s metropolitan area.
