No longer relegated to criminals, bikers and the military, tattoos have become an accepted and widespread method of personal expression. Over the past two decades, tattoo art has come to be considered its own specialised art form.

The popularity of ‘getting inked’ has spawned a bewildering amount of parlours in the city, and has led to the creation of the São Paulo Tattoo Festival – an event for body art enthusiasts, featuring big name artists from Brazil and abroad.

The festival will host stands for body piercing and permanent makeup as well, but check the event site (sptattoofestival.com.br) first if you plan on getting that Chinese dragon tat you had your heart set on: you can schedule a session with the artist of your choice – the American Myke Chambers or the Mexican Jose Lopes, to name a few – and if you’re already living with one that’s overstayed its welcome, there’s a free lecture on laser tattoo removal, too.
