According to the judges at Copenhagen ITC, the artistic level was extremely high throughout the convention. However, some won, and some didn’t. Find the complete list here.    

 

The name is Ulyss Blair. The man, who is now able to write “best of show” on his resume, at the closing point of Copenhagen International Tattoo Convention.

Asked, what that means to him, he says laughing “I am really happy for the recognition, especially because there are so many fucking great artists represented here, and it means, that I didn’t made a shitty tattoo.”

Ulyss Blair has been tattooing for 11 years, and can be found in Berlin Apocalypse Tattoo studio, when he is not travelling, that is. Cause he spends a good amount of time on the road, at conventions and guest spots all over the world. However, that’s everyday life to almost all of the tattoo artist at this convention, as one of the judges, points out:

“These artist are all very talented. They travels a lot, refines their work all the time, and develops new and exciting ways of mixing the traditional styles,” says Liz, ( Tattoo-Liz, DK) who was on the jury panel together with her experienced colleges Mick Riley (Custom Tattoos, UK), Svarnur Gudrunarson (Tattoo & Skart, Iceland) and Erika Stanley (Erika from America, US and DK.)

Not an easy task

The panel didn’t exactly had an easy time, in the sense, that the level and quality of tattoos has been extremely high. Once the basics were observed such as composition, location and execution, it was the small details that determined, whether it was one or the other, who eventually became the winner.

“But we have been very unanimous throughout,” tells Liz, and indicates the anonymity of each tattoo artist, as a very good idea. The judges saw only the work itself, without knowing the artist’s identity.

“This way, everyone could be certain, that there were no hidden agendas. It created a good and professional atmosphere,” states Liz, who has been delighted being part of the jury.
