The seventh annual Buenos Aires Tattoo Show was held at Hotel Bauen the weekend of 4th-6th March. This convention pulls in people from all over the world; the Buenos Aires city government even declared it a “tourist event of interest” for 2011. Special guest tattoo artists Paul Booth (US), Goethe (Mexico), Federico Ferroni (US) and others came to ink peoples’ arms, torsos, legs, and heads and people lined up for the chance. Beatrice Murch shares her photographs of the event with our readers.
