The cult of body art is stronger than ever in Rio, driven as much by beach culture as fashion, and the market is bigger than ever. Hence the first ever Rio Tattoo Week, taking over Maua's warehouses early in 2013 with famous names from the global tattoo industry including Steve Sotto from the USA and Germany's Randy Engelhard, as well as paying homage to local legends such as Caio Tattoo.

The full list of artists on show can be found at the official website (tattooweekrio.com.br), and there are a host of musical spin-off events, with Friday devoted to hip hop, Saturday to electronica, and Sunday turning into an all-day Brazilian music and samba affair. The name may be a little misleading given that the event lasts just three days, but anyone interested in witnessing the growth of the phenomenon, learning some new tricks and seeing some of the world's best designs won't be disappointed.
