Back to face-to-face: All Ways Tattoo Experience
Face-to-face tattoo events are back
30 May 2022
The beginning of the pandemic caused by Covid-19 and its restrictions taken by each government to prevent the collapse of the health system, had important implications in all sectors, and there was no alternative but to adapt to confinements.
The tattoo industry, specifically its educational sector, was one of those affected by the restrictions, since face-to-face courses and conventions were cancelled to prevent the spread of the virus.
This circumstance forced tattoo artists to rethink the way of dictating their workshops and to generate a new alternative that adjusts to the current world situation. Here technology played an essential role, since it was the salvation of most artists, as the solution to reactivate the tattoo teaching courses.
Although the virtual modality has transformed the learning sector, as an excellent and comfortable option, there are many other people who want face-to-face learning to live the experience in real life.
Finally, face-to-face activities had a re-emerged thanks to the positive and accelerated response of prevention measures, which most of the population complied with, allowing them to return to activities in a “normal” way.
This return did not eliminate the technological alternative, but rather added the possibility of enjoying and alternating the two options to attend a face-to-face event or access a virtual course 14,000 kilometres away.
The fight against the virus excited several artists, who decided to present tempting proposals for followers in the tattoo culture. One of the unmissable upcoming events is “ALL WAYS TATTOO EXPERIENCE”.
What is it about? We’ll tell you in a second.
ALL WAYS TATTOO EXPERIENCE
All Ways Tattoo Experience is the name chosen for an experiential seminar originated by 8 talented artists from the tattoo industry, and it is promoted on Instagram as "the experience for all those who seek to learn and create a true community of integral tattoo artists".
Tattooists state that their purpose is the creation of incentives in the world of tattooing, carrying it out from an inclusive and close perspective, seeking to break with the paradigm of distant and self-centred tattooists, to prioritize the feeling of this profession as a lifestyle. They also highlight that this much-desired return to face-to-face presence gives us an opportunity to rethink the way in which the art of tattooing is valued.
Madrid will hold this event from June 17th to 19th, 2022.
Conferences, experiences, influential brands and talks with different referents of the industry. They will expand on what they have learned throughout their career, and they will share with us their techniques and their different tools.
They will also give special emphasis to showing a more human perspective as well, as they’ll talk about their journey through the world of tattooing: how they have become what they are today, the importance of respect and perseverance.
It is essential to understand this before being great tattoo artists they are great people and that thanks to this we will have an immersive experience.
"All Ways Tattoo Experience seeks to be a space of proximity and creativity, where paradigms are broken, and we start from the action of sharing knowledge and good times around the passion for this profession". (website of the event)
This excellent experience will not only have a first edition as they are actually willing to transform it into a real learning space.

His professional vision and how he deals with it on a psychological level, related to the search for styles and the daily study of the subject.
“In my work, I have always emphasized colour and its different techniques. I would like to contribute with the different techniques that I usually use, such as solid colour, layered colour known as glazing, how to work with skin colour and high contrast.
Another important point for me is imagination as I would like to tell my creation process from the first minute until I finish it, where my influences come from and what resources I take when composing with my references.”

Kike proposes to talk about how to tattoo technically well with any machine, since he thinks that the secret is our hands and their movements.
“In my career I have always highlighted the technical aspect, something very important for me and my work: simple, direct and easy to understand designs. I want my work to look like a sticker, something that seems to be made with a printer, durable over time.”
Cristian will talk about how to approach work in black and white, the distribution of greys, contrasts, and the usefulness of skin, but also about how he has achieved his techniques through travels, experiments, and talks with colleagues.
“We all seek to highlight our own style and be able to transfer it to skin. I will tell you about my own experience, how I have reached the point where I am now, how obsession is the only way to achieve success.”

Lea will share with us her experience on how she has been able to find a personal aesthetic.
“After more than 20 years in the profession and going through various styles, I have tried to synthesize the knowledge acquired to achieve elegant and serious tattoos, so that their aesthetics do not expire with the passage of time.
The mystery of finding a taste for simplicity is within everyone's reach."

Also, it will instruct us on how to connect several tattoos in a balanced and fluid way, as well as how to develop your own style, along with the application of 3D in tattooing, among other artistic techniques.
“The tattoo is a mix between design and sculpture, they are flat images applied on a three-dimensional canvas, which also moves, ages, is alive and must work visually from all angles, so I will talk to you about how we can take advantage of the body shapes to design a suit that moves in harmony with the skin, create optical effects to enhance natural body shapes and correct imperfections.”
