Scene360’s focus is tattoo art not music, however, the Lisbon Tattoo Rock Fest presented great live-band shows from Sheer Terror to Bizarra Locomotiva. The event was cancelled last year but the organization came back bigger than ever with over 100 tattoo artists in the “Sala Tejo” in Altice Arena, located in a gorgeously modern area of Lisbon by the river. All of this was made possible by the main sponsoring of Harley Davidson, World Famous Ink, and Moody.
With 2.200 m2 (24746 ft2) of convention space, it welcomed many thousand of spectators to view the works of Portuguese tattooers Johnny Domus, Joao Morais and Mauro Amaral, as well as international ones like Bullet BG, Keegan Sweeney and Leo Barrachina. All in all it was not an intimate event as word of mouth had spread, but a rather large and diverse event with much to see for the affordable ticket prize.
