You can register as a participant or a visitor, so if you plan to hopefully get a tattoo at this festival, go with the former. Other activities include live tattooing by the artists pretty much all day for three days, seminars on tattooing, and a whole array of fun contests for people who have tattoos already. There will be contests for the best small/big tattoo, spiritual tattoo, traditional tattoo, and arm/sleeve or back/chest tattoos. If your tattoo really makes the mark, you may actually have a chance to win something!

This is the first time a festival in India has set up a massive interactive tattooing experience of this kind, where people have an opportunity to explore the art form by exchanging ideas, watch it happen live, and be inspired by tattooing talent from around the world!
