Faroe Islands’ Tatt Fest 2022

x
The program includes a memorial concert, visual art exhibition, lectures on the history of tattoos and awards for best tattoos in cooperation with Cheyenne Tattoo.

The Faroe Islands’ Tatt Fest is the first and only tattoo convention in The Faroe Islands and is distinctive due to the festival-resembling atmosphere. 23 tattoo artists are attending, and they are among the most talented on a global scale. They are also diverse in their nationality and culture. Additionally, we offer an exciting program this weekend. the program includes a benefit concert, visual art exhibition, lectures on the history of tattoos, and awards for best tattoos in cooperation with Cheyenne Tattoo.

In December 2021, the initiator and founder of FO Tatt Fest, Fjølnir Geir Bragason (also known as Fjølnir Tattoo), passed away. Therefore, this year’s Tatt Fest will be marked by the absence of this great man, who along with Palli Sch Thorsteinsson founded FO Tatt Fest back in 2011. This year also marks the ten-year anniversary of the convention. It is thus a bittersweet celebration. We wish to honor Fjølnir, and all that he meant for the tattoo world, and continue his work by commemorating ten years of tattoo conventions in the Faroe Islands.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to an exciting weekend in the Nordic House on the 20th-22nd of May, where the art is in focus and diversity flourishes.
