It is a pity, a pity. The Styrian Tattoo & Hotrod Show
With its premiere in 2007, it was already presented practically as one of the most beautiful tattoo events in the world and has steadily grown in quality, mood, size and entertainment value. On the third weekend in August, the fourth edition of the show was adopted by its visitors , Yvonne and Andy from the Mystery Touch Tattoo Studio have been over the top in organizing this top event - despite their excellent, motivated and always friendly helper team, despite the unprecedented support of the City of Gleisdorf and despite the consistently positive feedback that they provide from practically all visitors and participants of the last years. But even with motivation, support and recognition not all problems can be solved which brings such an event with it. The fourth Gleisdorfer Convention should therefore definitely be the farewell event, and to that extent mingled with the boisterous celebration, the hustle and bustle, the tattooing, rocking and the cozy get-togethers throughout the weekend, always a bit of sadness.
Last year, the Tattoo Convention took place in the Styrian town, the almost 6000 inhabitants counts, paused. Andy and Yvonne wanted to give themselves and their team a break after the first three years of the convention organization in order to be back in 2011 for exhibitors and visitors and give it a go. And they succeeded without question! The gala dinner is legendary, with which exhibitors and artists are welcomed on the eve of the convention by the organizers in Gleisdorf; In an elegant evening attire, tattoo artists, dealers and artists can enjoy a spectacular multi-course meal as well as entertaining show performances and get to know each other. The effort of the Orga-Team here every year sends a clear signal to the participants: This show is not about commerce and coal, here the focus is on the tattoo artists, their art,
Styrian Tattoo & Hotrod Show 2009
Joe Capobianco's vampire monster girl won the Best of Saturday trophy.
Gleisdorf, a relatively manageable, five thousand-soul village in Styria, Austria, has been synonymous with a world-class convention since 2007 in the tattoo scene.
At the top event, which Yvonne and Andy of the Mystery Touch Tattoo launched for the third time at the end of August, almost twice as many people live as in Gleisdorf. Hotels, hostels, guesthouses and holiday apartments in and around the Styrian town are often fully booked months in advance.And the announcement on the convention homepage that there will be no tattoo show in Gleisdorf in 2010 was an additional incentive for many to not miss the event this year.
It's understandable that the organizing team wants to "take off" next yearSince the spectacular premiere in 2007, it has always been the concern of Yvonne and Andy to go one better every year. This is of course associated with a huge amount of work, especially since the Styrian Tattoo and Hotrod Show is no longer just a tattoo convention, but also a US custom car show and rockabilly festival. And for every area, only the best is in question: for friends of psycho and rockabilly rail, the Frantic Flintstones were flown in specially for the convention. Unfortunately, the Saturday night, when the psycho cult band rocked on the outdoor stage, was a bit rainy, but psychos and Rockabillies are apparently waterproof, at least nobody let the bad weather spoil the mood.
In the tattoo area in Gleisdorf anyway every year, the best in their field represented.Liorcifer, Jo Harrison, Benjamin Moss, Lard Yao, Bernie Luther or Leo belong virtually to the regular cast, as well as Mäx from Bad Ischl, Miss Nico, Leslie Reesen or the two Andys from Germany (the electric and the Kitzinger). Comic-style pin-up artist Joe Capobianco and Japanese expert Jack Mosher were invited as special highlights this year. Even those artists who were there for the first time immediately noticed the extremely relaxed and relaxed atmosphere of this event. No one was annoyed when he asked for a triple plug, tape or a copy. On the contrary, the helpers, who were constantly approachable, often offered unsolicited help. That, of course, contributed to a relaxed mood, Some conventions in which the team - if at all findable - is basically responsible for nothing and just to be there to make life difficult for the exhibitors, there could be some thick slices ... Also at our TM booth, we were able to benefit from the help of the fun-loving Orga team; We had 3,000 magazines delivered to Gleisdorf, which had to be transported to the hall first. Thanks to the hard-working helpers, all the piles of piles were ready for take-away for the visitors on time at the TM booth, just in time for the opening of the hall on Friday afternoon. In addition to the current issues of the tattoo magazine and TattooStyle we had, as previously announced in the TM, yes even leftover stocks of very old issues, which some fans have been very happy; Many a long-standing TM reader was able to fill the gaps in his collection with long-outdated issues from the 90s.
As in the years before, I was invited to the contest jury by organizer Andy; I always like to do that, because that's how you get in the front row, what is required at an event. And instead of walking through the ranks and looking around for tattoos, you can sit down for a while and the tattoos run past you - very comfortable! Judging the tattoos, however, is often quite tricky. For example, the "Best of Friday" saw a stinging match between a straight portrait tattoo and a top-tattooed vampire girl in comic style; With such tattoos that do not compare to the style, it's really hard to decide which of them should be better. But I think anyway that you should not take judicial decisions too seriously, after all, it is important that the wearer is satisfied with his tattoo and not

As the "electric Andy" of the Body Electric Studio from Willich would have bitten better on the tongue last year,when he was asked by Yvonne and Andy, the organizers of the Styrian Tattoo & Hotrod Show, if he had any wishes or complaints. Because the exhibitors at this convention are being cared for more than at any other event, Andy could not help but complain that the twenty meters between the parking lot and the convention hall had to be run by themselves. He should have known that such a comment would not be without consequences. And so Andy was picked up from the parking lot this year at the start of the second Styrian Tattoo & Hotrod show with a litter specially made for him and carried into the hall ... because this year nobody really should have been able to say that he had any problems in Gleisdorf something missing!.
Already at the premiere of this convention in Styria last year, both exhibitors and guests were amazed by the great organization, the varied program and the atmospheric location, a former Dominican nunnery. The fact that an event in Gleisdorf, which itself has only a good 5,000 inhabitants, is able to attract almost twice the number of inhabitants to guests in the community, also convinced the mayor that tattoo fans are now a serious economic factor.
Accordingly, he offered Yvonne and Andy equal to his support for the second edition of this top convention and inquired a bit premature, if he could otherwise contribute anything to the success of the event. "Gladly," said the tattoo artist couple, "we need a closed off road, because we want to run a quarter-mile race with hot rod cars!" The mayor then looked a bit strange, but he would not have asked have to. He had just got away with it now.
But the Quartermile race on Sunday morning was just one of the innovations Yvonne and Andy had come up with with their team for their event. The entire convention had been raised a little bigger this year; In the event center »forum Kloster« there were more tattoo artists than last year and also the outdoor area was designed generously.
In a large tent, right next to the monastery, visitors had enough space to eat, drink and chat over beer benches, while on a small stage live bands from psychobilly to death metal appeared. The walk to the monastery lined, as in the past year, many stunning hot rods; many visitors took the opportunity to be photographed in front of the crazy Rennsemmeln and Cruisers.
The fact that especially the music program had been moved outside, was particularly well received by the tattoo artists, who like to do without live sound during their work. As in the previous year, the lineup of tattoo artists was the very first cream: Liorcifer, Hernandez, Aaron Bell, Jo Harrison, Moro Tattoo or Asian top tattoo artists, such as Miyazo from Japan or Eddie from Borneo Ink, found their way back to Styria Village, which became the hotspot of the international tattoo scene for three days due to the presence of this top tattoo artist.

So much has been written and sent about tattooing lately that there is not much to add to the tattoo's history, tradition, trends and future. We just want to bring a short brainstorming, which should be important to the tattoo-interested in our view ..... and we try every day
