Some of the best tattoo artists in Ireland have worked together to launch the world's first ‘tattoo cooler’ exhibition in Dublin.
The artists, who work in a variety of companies such as Wild Cat Tattoo, Hydraulix, Colour Works, Remis Tattoo, Domus Tattoo Art, Dublin Ink and the Body Art Expo, were given fake skin to put their own creative stamp on Red Bull can-coolers. The canvas cooler project was showcased in Dublin's Generator Hostel yesterday evening.
All nine Red Bull canvas coolers will be showcased as part of the Body Art Expo, which will take place at the Helix in Glasnevin, Dublin on the 4th and 5th of July.
This first edition of the tattoo convention will feature over 100 international tattoo artists, body piercers, traders, alternative shows and entertainment.
During the Expo, two of the Red Bull coolers will be given away in a competition.
