In the industrial surroundings of Gdansk Shipyard Centre will be held the sixth edition of Gdansk Cropp Tattoo Convention. During the festival weekend, we will be able to admire the skills of more than 150 best tattoo artists from around the world. The festival will include Dimityi Samohin from Ukraine, famous for his realistic works, a Greek native and European top tattooist - Kostas Baronis and the leading members on the Polish tattoo scene - Zappa, Marcin Domanski and specializing in surrealistic style, Piotr Olejnik. But that's not all!

Apart from Europe’s most breathtaking tattoos, the event will also offer: music, shows, exhibitions. The main event of the Convention’s music stage will be Everlast – an American singer and legend of the alternative hip-hop music, who will be visiting Poland for the second time. Former member of the legendary House of Pain, accompanied by Bryan Velasco (keyboards), will come to Gdansk specifically for Cropp Tattoo Convention.. Among others, we will be able to listen to the songs from the artist’s latest project - The Life Acoustic. 

Additionally the venue will holt the shows of the leading world representatives of independent music. During the two-day festival, its CONCERT STAGE will show such stars like the Canadian trio - The Brains, and the metal band Black Temple from Sweden. In the timetable there is also a real treat for fans of the energetic psychobilly, who will have the chance to participate in the concert of British pop group - The Meteors. Moreover,the Detroit-based Koffin Kats will offer their best. The local music scene will be represented by, among others, the shrouded in the mystery Bokka or punk'n'roll Tiger Skull. This year’s Gdańsk Cropp Tattoo Convention timetable includes also a DJ scene, which will host the masters of turntablism - DJ Fly, DJ Woody and DJ Irie. 

The must see attraction of this year's Cropp Tattoo Convention in Gdansk will certainly be the EXHIBITION SCENE, where viewers will be able to admire the show by the, highly valued in Poland, burlesque artist - Candy PinUp. To level things up, apart from the British performances, one will be able to see the seemingly polite show of Dollhose – the own project by photographers Diana Błażków and Anika Stanclik. The artists will take viewers back to their childhoods as beautiful, tattooed models, styled as porcelain dolls will present themselves on the scene.
