We would like to say thank you once again for an amazing Ume Tattoo Fest 2017!

It was another great event with lots of happy people, goodlooking tattoos and everything else associated with a tattoo fest.

It’s time for an update about the event and what we are working on right now.

Unfortunately we will not be doing Ume Tattoo Fest 2018 and we feel very sorry about that!

We have chosen to put the event on a pause during 2018 because of several reasons which makes us unable to organize and develop the event the way we would like to.

Since the first idea of organizing a tattoo fest in Umeå came up 7-8 years ago, our goal has been to host a long-lasting yearly event which maintains a good or improved quality every year. That in particular is what we feel unable to do with the preconditions we have to work with at the moment.

We don’t want to dwell too deep into this, but we want to ensure you that we haven’t given up the thought of organizing a reoccuring tattoo fest in the north of Sweden, and we are working on new ideas and possibilities.

We would also like to send a huge thank you to everyone for all the support and interest you have shown for the event theese past few years, without all the excited visitors, artists, vendors, volunteers and business partners there wouldn’t be any tattoo fest at all.
